I got this recipe from About.com Southern Foods, it is the recipe of Diana Rattray. I have been making it a few years now, when ever I make Prime Rib, I usually also make this Sauce. I have no idea why it is called a sauce, it is actually a gravy that goes well with prime rib and Yorkshire pudding as well as Beef Wellington. It is thick and rich, and simmers slowly over low heat, and becomes nice and thick with the ham bits, and mushrooms, & onions. I made mine with Merlot wine but there are others that can be used also. All I know is my family has come to expect this with certain meat dishes
