Sauce Robert Recipe

The Robert (pronounced "ro-BAIR") Sauce is a finished sauce made with onions, mustard and white wine simmered in a basic demi-glace. The Sauce Robert is an ideal accompaniment for grilled pork and other meat dishes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 quart demi-glace
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and lemon juice, and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onions until soft and translucent, but don't let them turn brown.

  3. Add the wine, heat until the liquid boils, lower the heat a bit and continue simmering until the liquid has reduced by two-thirds.

  4. Add the demi-glace, then lower heat to a simmer and reduce for about 10 minutes.

  5. Strain through a mesh strainer, add the mustard and the sugar-lemon mixture. Serve right away.
