This is such a great gravy. It takes a little longer than what I usually do.....but it's worth the extra time. It has such deep flavors that go together well. I wasn't sure when to add the I added it at step 6 1/2. lol. Right after simmering the wine and before adding the broth. It worked well. I used this on leftover roast for an open-faced hot beef sandwich and it was great. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Dee.
