Pinot Noir Butter Sauce Recipe

Beef and Seafood Sauce 


Pinot Noir Butter Sauce is heavenly on your favorite steak or beef roast!  I have also used it on Fillet of Salmon.  With this outstanding sauce, you can prepare a restaurant-quality meal for your family and friends.  This Pinot Noir Butter Sauce is quick and easy to make.

Since I live in Oregon and believe that Oregon’s Pinot Noir Wine is the absolute best wine, I use it a lot in my cooking.  Give it a try and delight in their job!  Also learn how to Cook Perfect Steaks.

Servings: 1 cup
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the shallots, wine, and peppercorns; bring just to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer until reduced in volume by 1/2, approximately 2 minutes.

  2. Whisk in the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, adding each piece before the previous one has been completely incorporated.  Continue until all the butter is incorporated and the sauce coats the back of a spoon, removing the pan from the heat periodically to prevent the sauce from getting too hot and breaking.  Salt to taste.

  3. Strain into a clean container.  Pour the prepared Pinot Noir Butter Sauce over your perfectly cooked steaks just before serving.

  4. Makes 1 cup sauce.

    Are the peppercorns whole?
    If so, do they soften during cooking, or do they need to be strained out?
