Port & Berry Game Sauce step by step
- Add the berries to a small bowl and pour over the Port. Add in the sprigs of thyme. Leave to soak in the port for 20 mins or so. Heat up a small saucepan over a medium heat. Pour in the berry/port mixture..
- Bring to a gentle simmer. Season with a touch of white pepper and salt. Once the blackberries are heated, gently lift them out of the sauce, and set aside. These will be re-added later. This is so they don't break down as the sauce reduces. Add in the balsamic vinegar, stir through..
- As the sauce reduces down slowly, stir occasionally and add the Worcester sauce and honey. Mix through until well dissolved. Season with black pepper to taste..
- Reduce the sauce down until beautifully glossy. Now add in beef stock 1tbsp at a time whilst stirring it well to loosen it up. You'll probably need to add around 5-6 tbsp worth. Just keep adding a little stock, allow it to reduce a little, then add some more. Here I like to stir in some of the cooking juices from the meat, to add extra flavour, but this is optional..
- Leave on a very low heat until ready to serve. When ready to serve carefully remove the sprigs of thyme and drizzle over your dish then re-add the blackberries to the plate. These add little bursts of tart sweetness. Enjoy! :).
