This sauce is not for the faint of heart. It's for the true taste seeker: the home cook for whom humble drippings just won't cut it. The key to preparing this recipe is to treat each step as a building block on the way to intense aroma and flavor. So don't be afraid to sear the veggies a little more than you normally would or add a little more wine to the mix.

We start by frying chicken wings over extremely high heat—the gristles and skin help give the resulting broth a smooth texture. The wings are then cooked with a long-simmered mixture of bacon, tomato, garlic and other flavorful goodies, double-fortified with dried mushrooms.

After straining, the broth is thickened with a toasted roux similar to the butter and flour combination used in traditional gumbo. This roux not only thickens the sauce, but also provides a nutty base.

The resulting sauce would be complete if it weren't for our ultimate finishing touch: we whisk together sherry vinegar for a smoky twist, soy sauce for an umami punch, a touch of hot sauce for unexpected spiciness, and butter to smooth out the texture. That's all. Somehow (wink, wink). This year, dive deep and surprise your friends and family with our absolute scoop.

“With all the strong umami ingredients and flavor-building techniques, I was actually worried that the sauce might be too intense. It is definitely rich, but very aromatic and balanced. It would pair well with duck, turkey, or beef.” —Young Sun Huh
