Port Wine Reduction
A good, basic recipe for a port wine reduction. Use this rich sauce to embellish beef steak.
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped carrots
2 bay leaves
3 cups port wine
- Combine all of the ingredients in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Continue to boil the mixture until it thickens and reduces to about 1/2 cup, about 45 minutes.
