  • Roasting pan from roast beef or saucepan
  • Wooden spoon or spatula


  • 1 cup Beef Broth or juices from roast beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup Red Wine
  • drippings from roast beef


  • Place the roasting pan from cooking roast beef on the stove over low heat after removing the roast from the pan. Alternatively, you can use another pan to cook the au jus sauce. Whisk Worcestershire Sauce and Red Wine into the dish along with drippings from the beef. If using the roasting pan, scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. A wooden spoon works best for this.
