"This is a great sauce to serve over chicken, pork, lamb, or steak. Fresh figs and port wine, are really key ingredients in this dish, so there really isn't any substitutes. Dried figs can be used, but you really don't get the same flavor."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Sauce ... Add the olive oil to a small pot, and bring to medium low heat. Add the shallots, garlic, 1/2 of the figs, the rosemary sprig; and, saute for 5 minutes until the figs and shallots are tender. Make sure to stir often - you don't want them to burn.

Step 2

Once the figs and shallots are tender, add the port wine, and cook 1 minute. Then, add the broth and simmer approximately 7-10 minutes, until the sauce has reduced by about half; and has thickened.

Step 3

Finish ... Remove the rosemary sprig, add the butter, remaining fresh figs, a pinch of salt and pepper to taste; and, the fresh chopped rosemary. If you are not a fan of rosemary, you may not want to add all of it. You can adjust how much you add according to your own tastes. Cook just a minute to heat up the figs.

Step 4

Serve and ENJOY! ... My favorite is to serve this over grilled lamb or pork; but, it is equally as good over chicken and steak. This is also good with a side of risotto, rice, or mashed potatoes.

Step 5

Serve and ENJOY!
