Lyonnaise Sauce Recipe
The Lyonnaise Sauce is a finished sauce made with onions and white wine vinegar simmered in a basic demi-glace. The Sauce Lyonnaise pairs well with roasted meats, grilled pork, poultry dishes and even grilled sausages.
Classically, you would strain the sauce before serving, but for a more rustic look, leave the onions when you serve it.
