So I fancied steak for dinner this week, but wanted something lighter than potatoes to accompany it, so I choose asparagus and teamed it with Gordon Ramsey’s shallot and red wine sauce. To make the sauce you must be patient as it needs reducing a couple of times, but boy is it worth it! The sauce was quite literally mouth-watering and will definitely become a favourite in my house and would be a great choice for a dinner party. I made a few tweaks to Gordon’s recipe, but no major changes.
This recipe really does call for penitence with the sauce. Gordon states that it takes 20 minutes to cook, but I found it to be more like 30 minutes, but well worth the effort.
