    Surely if you have been producing these products for years then you would have a pretty easy time re-creating them...wouldn't you? 

    My advice would be to look for a used CIA Pro-chef cookbook on Amazon or Ebay and start from there. Those would be solid, all purpose demi and jus recipes and you could tweak and change what suited your situation.

    Are you making a full beef stock or an Au Jus????   A Demi Glace is a cooked down stock in short.

    Au jus simply means that the meat is being served with it's own juice.
    Once you modify the liquid and add flour / water etc , it can no longer be called au jus.

    Petals.

    I'm not understanding making au jus. You take the liquid that's left and skim the fat off. At least that's what we do when we're serving a roast beef special. Am I missing something?

    For demi, just reduce your stock, or better yet make glace if you're going to be storing it.

    That's what I thought.

    I figured I might have just misunderstood something, or there was something else people were calling "au jus", as not everyone uses the french terminology correctly like we do in Montreal.

    A lot of times you have to fill out your jus because the meat wont render enough liquid, for this I use reduced beef stock. There are two ways to make a good Veal Demi in my opinion. If I have a lot of bones I make the Glace de Viande, and wash the fresh bones with the first wash of my stock. If I don't have a lot of bones, I make a remoulage out of the bones and marry it with my first wash. I then reduce both by at least half.
