Up to my neck in demi-glace

So, I made a boat-load of demi-glace over the weekend and now I can't think of anything to use it in...

I am now taking recipe shout-outs!

Think along the lines of:
- Week night dinner
- For two people
- Quick and easy (per se)

  1. What kind of demi-glace? Beef, veal or chicken? I've used the veal and beef demi-glace (from Williams Sonoma, as I've never tried making my own) in a simple sauce for pork tenderloin.

    1/2 jar blackberry preserves
    2 tbsp. demi-glace
    dash of balsamic syrup (the vinegar works just as well)
    1/4 stick butter, cut into small pieces

    Simply combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and heat thoroughly...unbelievable over a pork tenderloin, pork roast, or even broiled duck breast.

        1. You can freeze it. It will keel for a long time. I'd divide it up though.

          1. Thanks. I actually did freeze it and made enough to fill 3 ice cube containers. I was sort of in shock at how much I had once I was done.

            1. olive oil and butter
              demi glace
              salt and pepper
              wisk in some more butter at the end

              serve over meat or even egg noodles (if serving over noodles I would add more mushrooms)

                Great! How much madiera (roughly) to demi?

                  I used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking..see "Marchand de Vin recipe". Sorry, I don't have the recipe on hand at the moment.

                  If I recall correctly it called for 1/2C madiera to 1C of demi. Add madiera to shallots and mushrooms (slice thinly) and let simmer for a few minutes til reduced to about 1/2 and then add demi and let simmer for 10 more minutes. Add butter and whisk before serving.
