  • Add the beef stock and continue to simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens and flavors meld together.
  • Stir in the Dijon mustard and the remaining butter until they are fully incorporated into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
