Step-by-Step Recipe of Garlic Cream Sauce:

Ingredients required:

To make a tasty and creamy recipe of garlic sauce, gather all the ingredients that are listed hereunder:

  1. 4 cloves of garlic
  2. 2 ounces of butter
  3. 1 cup heavy cream
  4. 1 shallot
  5. ¼ cup of parsley leaves
  6. Half (½) cup of lemon juice
  7. 1 tablespoon of cooking wine or apple cider vinegar
  8. 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  9. Half (½) tablespoon of garlic spot
  10. Half (½) tablespoon of pepper


Well, have you gathered all the necessary ingredients? If yes, then let’s begin with our recipe.

Step 1: Melting of Butter


Our recipe for tasty and creamy garlic sauce begins with melting butter. First of all, take a deep pan and add 2 oz of butter. Generally, Irish butter is mostly used in making a variety of sauces including garlic sauce. Irish butter is mostly preferred because it contains plenty of butterfat (almost 82%) than other varieties of butter. It is salted and is easy to spread compared to classic butter.


Step 2: Grounding of Shallot and Garlic:


Take 4 cloves of garlic and 1 shallot and cut them into small pieces with a sharp knife. As we are making a garlic sauce, it is best to use fresh garlic. Shallots are necessary because they enhance the flavor of the sauce, make it more aromatic, and add depth of flavor to garlic sauce.

Step 3: Cooking of minced shallot and garlic:


Once you are done with grinding of shallot and garlic, put them in the heated butter. Let the shallot and garlic cook until fragrant. Continue cooking until the garlic and shallot become golden brown with that sizzling sound. This takes just a few minutes.

Step 4: Insertion of Vinegar:


When shallot and garlic are properly cooked, add a tablespoon of cooking wine. Out of 6 types of cooking wines, the most preferred for garlic sauce is white wine or sherry. Wait? You don't have cooking wine? Well, this is not a problem. You can use apple cider vinegar instead.


For your information, cooking wine is added in sauces because it is the best ingredient for balancing flavors in the dish. Cooking wine or vinegar maximizes the overall taste of the sauce.

Step 5: Addition of Cream:


Add 1 cup of heavy cream to the mixture after cooking the wine. Give this a good stir and let it come to a simmer. At this step, your sauce will start becoming thick. After achieving a good consistency, you can remove the pan from the flame. However, if you want to make the sauce more thick like a gravy. Read the next step. If not, simply skip the following and proceed to step 7.

Step 6: For Extra Thickness (Optional):


Those food enthusiasts who want extra thickness in their garlic sauce just like gravy, will perform an additional step. Take 1 tbsp of water along with 1 tbsp of cornstarch. Mix water and cornstarch in a bowl. This is called a slurry. Put this slurry into the cream mix. This is an easy method of maximizing the consistency of garlic sauce without adding flour to it.

Step 7: Final Touch:


Add garlic salt, chopped parsley, and half or full tablespoon of lemon juice to the prepared tasty and creamy garlic sauce. These few ingredients are crucial and should be added in the end when you remove the sauce from the stove.
