Or cook longer if you prefer meat well done. 2. Transfer the meat to a heated serving platter and keep warm. 3. Pour off the fat from the skillet. Add 1 tbsp of the butter and when it is hot, add the shallots. Cook briefly, stirring, then add the wine. Cook until almost reduced by half. Stir in the brown sauce and cook about 2 min. 4.
