How to prepare the white wine sauce for the slices: variations of the recipe

A second technique for preparing the wine sauce is as follows:

After cooking the meat on both sides , remove it from the pan and place the slices on a plate. At this point, still with the flame lit, add the wine and about 50 ml of broth or water to the pan and let the sauce form ( 3-4 minutes will suffice ). If too much liquid remains, you can add 1 teaspoon of flour and mix. Once the pan has been deglazed, put the meat back inside and mix everything well before turning off the heat and serving.

It is also possible to customize the recipe for the second course of meat: for example, a classic modification is the addition of the juice of half a lemon , which can be added at the end of cooking the meat to give a sour note to the dish and degrease it. Not only that, you can add aromatic herbs to taste, such as parsley or rosemary.
