Steaks and Smoky Wine Sauce

This sauce sounds kind of fancy...okay, it IS fancy. I made it earlier this week to pour over steaks. We grilled NY Strips but it would also be delicious with a good rib-eye.

Steak Wine Sauce
makes enough to dress four steaks

1/2 cup port wine
1 1/2 cups red wine
1/2 cup cremini mushrooms, roughly chopped
1 red onion, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 canned chiles (Adobo Chipotle)
1 tsp. thyme
2 cups beef broth
2 Tbsp butter
kosher salt


In a large saucepan, combine wines, mushrooms, onion, garlic, chiles and thyme.  Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
Add the broth and repeat first step. 
Strain the liquid and throw away everything else in the pan. Return the liquid to the pan.  Simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
Whisk in butter and season with salt. Remove from heat and serve over steaks.
