Rich Onion Gravy
(Serves 2 generously)
2 medium onions, sliced
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!
That looks soooo good, my mouth is watering! Gonna tell Keith that he has to cook this for my dinner tomorrow 😉
