Madeira Sauce

Global.Potpourri's picture
Madiera sauce is a wonderfully flavorful sauce that I often use in cooking. Made with assorted veggies like carrots, celery and green onions, the madeira sauce is cooked in chicken broth with madeira and is flavored with thyme, bay leaf and some tomato sauce.
  Chopped celery 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped carrot 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped green onion 2 Tablespoon, chopped
  Cooking oil 1 Tablespoon
  Water 1 Quart
  Beef bouillon cubes 2
  Chicken bouillon cubes 1
  Bay leaf 1⁄2
  Ground thyme 1 Pinch
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Tomato sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Madeira 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)

Cook celery, carrot, and onion in hot oil in a large saucepot until dark brown, but not burned.
Stir in 1 quart water, bouillon cubes, bay leaf, thyme, and pepper.
Bring to boiling, and simmer until liquid is reduced by half.
Strain the liquid.
Stir in tomato sauce and bring to boiling.
Vigorously shake 1/4 cup water and flour in a screw-top jar.
While stirring the boiling mixture, slowly add the flour mixture.
Cook 1 to 2 minutes, then simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Just before serving, stir madeira into sauce and bring sauce to boiling.
