Ingredients
  

  • 1 carrot finely chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 25 ml oil
  • 15 gram butter
  • 20 gram flour
  • 400 ml meat stock
  • 5 ml salt
  • 5 ml pepper

Instructions
 

  • Melt the butter and oil in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Add the vegetables and cook gently until they begin to brown, about 7 minutes.
  • Remove from the stove and stir in the flour smoothly.
  • Return to the stove and cook, still stirring, until a brown roux is obtained, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove from the stove and gradually add the stock, stirring all the time.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, half covered, for 45 minutes.
  • Strain through a fine sieve and season with salt and pepper.

Notes

  • The vegetables must cook gently, not brown.
  • The sauce must be simmered very slowly and half-covered to obtain the best results.
  • If the stock becomes too thick, dilute it with a little extra stock, water, wine or sherry.
  • If the sauce is too thin, boil it rapidly, uncovered for a few minutes.
