    ooh dunno.
    i have made one before with the juices from meat and some wine and just reduced it. but that was lamb.
    ive had a quick google and there isnt much there either. Ive heard about xantham gum (sp?) as a thickener you could do with stock and drippings?

    You can use Xanthum gum to thinken stuff with, no carbs but initally quite hard to not make things go lumpy!
