Red Wine Reduction

Red Wine Reduction

My family and I love to grill out as often as possible and nothing pairs better with a juicy char-grilled streak than a hearty red wine reduction. Its herbaceous and works well with chicken, pork and especially beef! Its super quick and easy to make so follow along!


  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of cold butter diced


Take a small sauce pan and heat about a tbsp of oil followed by sauteing red onions until translucent.

I use better than bouillon for my reduction and its PERFECTION
Translucent and ready for broth and red wine!

When the onions have cooked for about a minute or two, pour in the cup of red wine, beef broth, herbs, salt and pepper.

Ready for the broth and a gooooood streak!

Dropping herbs in to add some serious flavor

After about 30 minutes the sauce will have reduced by half and is ready to be taken off the heat. Slowly add the butter in 1 tbsp at a time and whisk until smooth.

Doesn’t butter make EVERYTHING better?

After it’s all incorporated, strain the sauce into a serving dish to be paired with your favorite meat. It goes WONDERFULLY on mashed potatoes and veggies as well!! Enjoy!!

I can literally drink this ANYTIME!!
