Simple Pan Sauce
Pan sauces are an easy and quick way to create a sauce to accompany a dish. Essential ingredients to make a pan sauce include either stock, water, or wine and cream or butter. Once you have seared your protein, simply deglaze the pan with liquid and finish with cream or butter. You can also emulsify the liquid and the cream or butter together. A drop of acid is always a great touch at the end, for example lemon zest or juice. You can also add chopped herbs to enhance the look and the flavor.
