4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 

3 shallots, minced 

12 cups heavy cream

1 teaspoon salt 

1 tablespoon black pepper 

Chipped beef, for serving 

Sourdough toast, for serving

Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Paprika, for garnish


  1. In a small pan, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and add the flour. Cook, stirring, until the mixture begins to turn a light brown color, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Cook the garlic, rosemary and shallots until the shallots are translucent. Add the cream and bring to a boil. Add the butter-flour mixture, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the salt and pepper and strain.
  3. For each serving, heat 1 cup of sauce to a simmer, add 2 ounces chipped beef and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture over two to three slices sourdough toast and garnish with parsley and paprika.
