Demi Glace


Demi glace is the base to many of the most classic sauces in french cooking. Demi on its own is a terrific sauce as well. This is the base we use for our braised beef dish at Cacio Pepe. I recommend you read the article on beef stock before reading this, as this sauce is based off a beef brown stock that is made correctly. Anyone that has talked to me about cooking for more than a minute, knows that I throw around the word "classic" all the time. I am all about the classics, and everything should be made a certain way, the original way. This is about one of the only times I would disagree is with this classic sauce. A classic demi glace sauce is made by mixing equal parts brown stock, and espagnole sauce. An espagnole sauce is essentially a brown stock (minus the beef bones) that has been made with beef stock instead of water, and there is an addition of flour as a roux, to thicken the mixture. The beauty of this is it costs about half as much in food cost as the way I am going to show you, the disadvantage of this is the colour, and flavour are not particularly close. Demi glace sauces are usually the most expensive in the kitchen, and for this reason they are usually reserved for fine dining restaurants, that can eat the food cost in the price of the meal a little better than your average mom and pop.

The method in which we are going to use for this demi glace is straight reduction. There are only two ingredients; beef stock, and red wine.

 

Step 1 - Cook down your red wine

You are going to start by cooking down your red wine in a heavy bottom pot, till it is almost syrupy in consistency.


Step 2 - Add your beef stock

Step 3 - Simmer the mixture, and cook down

You are going to cook down the beef stock mixture by around 1/6 to 1/8 in volume. It will become thicker, and syrupy.

You should be able to coat the back of spoon, and when you run your finger across the spoon, the liquid does not run down the cleaned portion of spoon.

 

 Step 4 - Strain the Demi Glace

 First strain your demi through a fine sieve, and then strain that mixture through a coffee filter.

For over 2 litres of beef stock, you don't end up with more than a couple of ounces.

You may not end up with a lot of sauce at the end, but what you do end up with is one of the most flavourful sauces, and most common french sauce base’s there is.

    Life throws you on a roller coaster, and for some like myself, loosing your life savings is the worst thing that can happen to you because you are just trying to handle the downs of life so you can get back up. Once things in my life were better, that is when my life took a turn for the worse as by every indications, i seemed to have lost my funds to a fraudulent crypto and stock trading company. There’s no way I would be able to survive the cruel reality I was facing. I read reviews for the leading digital assets recovery solutions out there including JETHACKS RECOVERY CENTRE. some had good and not so good reviews. After about a month of research on the companies, I decided to go with JETHACKS RECOVERY CENTRE because I had a great conversation with one of their agents on their Email support @JETHACKS7@GMAIL.COM where I initially made my enquiries. I got set up and this is how it has been so far:
    I started working with JTHs on a Tuesday and I got my funds recovered by the eve of Friday. To this date, the scammers have no idea the funds went to my wallet after I told them off when they contacted me trying to figure out what had happened to my funds. In my experience so far, I have come to find out you need to have believe for the process, but the team’s process does all the work. Yes, you have to be strong willed to go through with this, but if you are serious about recouping your assets, then this is absolutely such a small task. They have great customer service and they don’t give you fluff, they are honest about what you should expect. customer support and transparency level is very impressive, they keep you updated of the progress every step of the way. All of this allows me to monitor the progress without having to pick up the phone to ask someone from the team but If you do have a question and need to speak with someone, they are very responsive. This experience has been a very good one for me, I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own, Thank you for what you have done and will continue to do for me, JETHACKS!.. they have a telegram support also, the username is @ JETHACKSS
