Making fond for sauce with ground beef

bassaroo | Apr 2, 2012 11:07 PM

Hello all,

I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for getting a decent fond for pan sauce preparation without actually cooking the main meat in a pan. I have gotten pretty good at making a brandy+beef stock+shallots+fond+butter pan sauce for my steaks and I'm very happy with it. The only problem is that I need a decent fond and I prefer to grill my steaks (for which the sauce is made).

Can i use leftover raw ground beef to get a decent fond in my pan, and would it taste much different than using steak (or steak scraps)?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Here's a link to the recipe I've been using for a long time http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/in...
