Rich Onion Gravy

(Serves 2 generously)

2 medium onions, sliced

25g butter

1 tblspn olive oil

1 glass red wine

200ml well flavoured stock

1 tspn cornflour mixed into a paste with a little stock

  • Heat the butter and oil over a medium heat.  Add the onions and cook for 20-30 minutes until the onions are richly coloured and falling apart.
  • Add the wine, increase the heat and reduce by half. 
  • Add the stock and simmer gently for 15 mins.  Season.
  • Thicken with the cornflour paste and reduce a little.   Sauce should be thick and glossy.

Serve with mashed potatoes (just a little milk and seasoning will do for this mash as the sauce is so rich), steamed/boiled white cabbage and good quality sausages.  Not a fan of veggie sausages but, I’ve got to say, they are bad with this gravy at all!
