Do we serve the steak sauce on the bottom of the ingredient list on the side or as a substitute to the wine reduction that’s poured over top. Recipe looks great! Can’t wait to try it tomorrow

I have same Q as Jason. Underneath wine reduction it states 3 ingredients, olive oil, butter & wine. Is this the reduction ingredient? It’s just that in the method section ‘the butter’ is used to fry the eggs!? Please can you clarify the reduction ingredients. Apologies if Q seems daft, I’m novice cook. Thank you

You mention "wine reduction ingredients" but give no mention as to what said ingredients are. Are we just talking deglazing the pan with red wine and allowing it to reduce? Or have i missed something? Thank you!
