Directions for Au Jus...
Gather any pan drippings that have been created while roast is cooked and add to wine in saucepan and reduce on high heat for 5 minutes, until mixture has thickened slightly. Add beef stock, 2 sprigs of thyme and reduce another 10 minutes. Taste the au jus. If it’s too salty, add a little more stock or wine to balance flavors.
Serve by with Creamy Horseradish sauce and your favorite side dishes like cauliflower mashies and sautéed asparagus for a healthy full meal.
* Note: This salt & peppercorn preparation is classic. However, we sometimes mix it up by substituting one of our other seasonings, like The Original or Herbs of Summer So make often and play with the taste!
