Savory Blueberry Steak Sauce

Savory Blueberry Steak Sauce


3 T unsalted butter

2 small shallots, chopped

2 T cornstarch

1/4c sherry vinegar

1/4 cup ketchup

3T Dijon Mustard

1/4 c orange juice

1/4 c molasses

1/2 t dried thyme

1/4 t dried sage

2 c fresh blueberries

salt and fresh pepper to taste

Melt butter in large skillet, medium heat.  Add shallots, saute until soft, do not brown.

Sprinkle in cornstarch, stir continuously until cooked and begins to bubble

Add vinegar, ketchup, mustard, orange juice, molasses, thyme, and sage, stir to combine.

Add blueberries and stir

Raise heat to medium high, bring to boil.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook, stirring often, about 15 minutes until thick and glossy, season with salt and pepper.

Here you have a choice.  I wanted some chunks of blueberry so I simply mashed the berries to a consistency I liked using an old style potato masher.  If you prefer a smooth sauce, this can be cooled for a bit and then run through the processer and reheat.

I served this warm, spoonful or two over the meat.
