  • 2 Tbsps vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup shallots minced
  • 3 Tbsps dried cranberries rough chopped
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • pinch of cinnamon optional (but consider if serving with poultry)
  • pan juices from broiled steaks or other roasts (2-3 Tbsps)


  • Heat vegetable oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add shallots and cook about 3 minutes til soft. Add the dried and fresh cranberries and the wine.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer until the cranberries have burst and the mixture is reduced by about half. This took about 30 minutes for my sauce. A larger surface skillet will take less time.
  • When reduced remove from heat and add the maple syrup and spices. Add up to a 2-3 Tbsps of the pan juices from your roast and simmer until it is evenly mixed.
  • Serve on the side of your steaks or roasted meat.
