Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.Strain through a fine sieve lined with a triple layer of cheesecloth. Refrigerate in a sealed container for up to two weeks.

Drizzle on grilled pizza or flatbread, grilled rib-eyes or other steaks. Or add to stir-fry sauces or Asian marinades.
