Beurre Manié- French Sauce Thickener
10 mins (prep 10)
3 ingredients
4 servings
Great little balls to have ready to throw into sauces, stews, or soups to thicken and enrich. I have not tried this with margarine; might work tho. IMO, the butter gives a richer taste. Keeps in a refrigerated jar for up to 3 weeks.
