Italian Sauce

This rich brown sauce is excellent served with meat loaf or meat patties.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 shallots, finely chopped

4 oz. mushrooms, wiped clean and chopped

2 fl. oz. beef stock

2 fl. oz. red wine

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 bay leaf

10 fl. oz. Brown Sauce

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the oil over moderate heat. When the oil is hot, add the shallots and mushrooms and fry, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the stock, wine, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper and bay leaf.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Add the brown sauce and simmer for a further 20 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and strain the sauce into a warmed sauceboat. Serve at once.
