  • 1 tsp beef granules
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh coarsely ground black pepper

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add diced shallot and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. 
  • Add chicken broth, whiskey, beef granules, thyme, black pepper. Bring mixture to a light boil. Reduce  the heat to low and cook 8-10 minutes or until reduced by half. Carefully remove the thyme sprigs.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and bring to at a low boil.  Stir often, and let it gently boil about 10-15 minutes. The sauce should be thicker than heavy cream.
