1 tbs. of flour

- Chop shallots, place in sauce pan with wine, reduce by two-thirds, add stock, salt and pepper.
- Return to the boil and reduce over a low heat.
- Mix butter and flour in a bowl and, while the meat is cooking, take some of the sauce and mix with the floured butter, then return to the sauce pan.

If you don't have a bottle of Bordeaux handy a reliable Rhone will do.
