  • 125ml dry red wine
  • 125ml beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1 – Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat.

Step 2 – Crush 2 garlic cloves with the flat side of your knife, and drop them into the saucepan with the rosemary sprig until fragrant.

Step 3 – Pour in the wine and let it simmer over a medium heat until the volume has reduced by half. This will take about 15 minutes, depending on the temperature.

Step 4 – Once reduced, add the beef stock, salt, and pepper.

Step 5 – Let the jus simmer for another 15 minutes, and reduce by half over a medium heat.

Step 6 – For a more concentrated jus, it can be left on a lower heat for longer.

Step 7 – Remove the sprig and cloves from the jus using a strainer or sieve.

Step 8 – This red wine jus will be enough for 4 servings, however the recipe can be easily doubled for larger quantities.
