Ingredients
  

  • 50 g butter
  • 2 large onions peeled, halved and thinly sliced.
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 120 ml red wine
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 large sprig fresh sage
  • 500 ml beef stock
  • 1 tsp Worcester sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cold unsalted butter for glazing

Instructions
 

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and sugar and cook for about 30 minutes until caramelized (deep golden).
  • Add the red wine and herbs, bring to a rapid boil for 2 minutes, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the stock, mustard, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  • Remove sprigs of herbs. Add the vinegar and simmer for another minute or two.
  • Melt 50g of butter over a low heat in a suitable size pan. Add 50g plain flour and heat gently stirring continuously to make a roux. Once it looks smooth and glassy turn up the heat and very gradually add the onion mixture, a little at first, stirring constantly.
  • Allow to simmer gently to cook out the flour, stirring regularly.
  • Add the cold butter and whisk until dissolved. Add salt and pepper to taste.
