"Bordelaise Sauce is a basic French Sauce based on wine and beef broth. It is great over steaks and burgers. Amy (From Amy's Cooking Adventures Blog) puts it over a steak, then tops the steak and sauce with 2 slices of bacon and a fried egg for a breakfast delight, but I know I would like it on steak along with a baked potato and sour cream and some kind of veggie as a main meal. You could also top a burger or cheeseburger with the sauce and add bacon and an egg and have a super breakfast sandwich, or leave off the egg and enjoy a great burger for lunch. No matter how you have it, I am sure you will enjoy it! I am posting it here for safe keeping because I am going to try it soon for sure!"

I made this awesome sauce and had it first with steak then with a baron of beef. I did not strain as I felt it did not need that step. Love the ease and how quickly it is to make. Great flavour! Thank you Linda for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Super easy and oh so good! I wasn't sure as to being one slice of onion - loving onions I used a mandolin making for thinly cut onion slices. Delicious served over hamburger steak. I too didn't do the sieve. Can't wait to serve to family and friends - one sieved and one with onions for my onion lovers. Did a print for my recipe drawer. Another Linda winner!

This bordelaise sauce really pumped up our steak tonight and is sexy enough to be served for a romantic meal as well as being restaurant worthy. I didn't run the sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove the solids as the recipe suggested because I wanted the onions to remain as is, but if I were serving this for company, I would have done so. Tomorrow I plan to serve this sauce for dinner again as it will make a great topping for our burgers. Thank you LindasBusyKitchen for sharing.
