Red Wine Reduction Sauce

Here's another easy sauce that goes well on all kinds of things! It's very similar to balsamic reduction sauce, but with a sweeter taste. It goes great on anything with bacon.



Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups red wine 
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

Directions:

  1. Boil wine and sugar in heavy, non-reactive saucepan over medium heat until it has reduced to about 1/3 cup of liquid. This should take about 18 minutes. (Be VERY careful. Taste it every few minutes. Once it has reached a syrupy consistency, it's done. I have ruined this sauce a few times because I over reduced it and it turned into a burned-tasting, sticky mess that hardened as it hit a cold plate.)
  2. Drizzle and enjoy!
