Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 6 cubes dark chocolate
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 pcs bayleaf
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chili powder or one deseeded chili, optional
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper optional
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup optional
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Bring the red wine and beef stock to boil and let it simmer and reduce.
  • When it has reduced a bit add the bay leaf, cinnamon, black pepper and chili so the flavors have some time to mature. Taste and see if it tastes good.
  • Now add the chocolate and stir so it doesn't stick. Taste again and see if you need to add the salt and maple syrup.
  • Add water if you want a thinner consistency/add cornflour if you want a thicker consistency.
  • Strain the sauce and pour it into a container.
  • Serve with roast beef, steak or lamb.

Tips & Trix

If you want a sauce that fits more to savory dishes, then before step one add 50/50 stock + redwine and reduce the liquid before continuing with the other steps. Then add the sugar, syrup and heavy cream slowly and taste so it doesn't get to sweet!
