Serve with steamed broccoli florets and quartered, roasted potatoes.
Summer savory is an herb with an aroma and flavor similar to a cross between thyme and mint. It is the characteristic ingredient of “herbes de Provence,” a fairly standard mixture of dried herbs sold in most French food stores.
If you prefer a smooth sauce, strain it after reducing it for 5 minutes but before adding the summer savory.
