My father grew up in France. At home, we would eat more French dishes than Polish dishes. And let me tell you, my father is a great cook. His creme caramel is second to none. Some of his recipes are very complicated and require a lengthy set of carefully arranged and timed actions.
Other recipes are refreshingly simple. Like my father’s red wine red onion steak sauce. You only need red onions, red wine, sour cream and salt and pepper. In theory at least, it is simple. But each time I tried it, I failed.
But the last time it came out perfect. I think it’s the cream.
Polish cream tastes like sour cream. It comes in different fat contents and you can buy cream with 12% fat, 18% or 22% fat. The latter would be more like sour cream. It is however the 18% cream that has to be used for this sauce. You can either buy Polish cream or add water to sour cream until the texture is like crepes batter). Sorry for the lenghty introduction but it was very much needed. But without further ado, on to the recipe.[yumprint-recipe id=’5′]
