Let’s get saucy!  If you are anything like me, there is nothing better than a dish with a great sauce that you can grab a piece of crusty bread and dip right into the saucy deliciousness.  One of my absolute favorite sauces is a Portuguese Molho de Vinho Tino or a Red Wine Sauce.  This is one of those recipes that we never seem to tire of.  We especially love it with Carne Picada and served over Portuguese Rice.   The sauce has so much flavor that it really doesn’t need anything other than a simple house salad to go along.

Stacy October 21, 2013 at 9:33 am

This is one of my favorite sauces, Isabel! I don’t know why I don’t think to make it more often. I tend to throw a little red wine in the gravy and call it red sauce but that just doesn’t match up. :)

Kim@Treats & Trinkets October 21, 2013 at 10:52 am

Yum, this sounds good, Isabel! And I do so happen to have an open bottle of red wine… ;) Great minds think alike.

Our wedding dinner was steak with a red wine sauce. Your recipe would be wonderful to use to recreate that dinner for our upcoming anniversary. Thank you!

Mmmmm……I want to pour this tasty sauce over everything, Isabel! Especially pasta and a warm, crusty loaf of bread. Delicious!
