and glossy is pretty; ya eat with your eyes, no? Even if you thicken a sauce with some type of starch, many recipes will have you finish the sauce by stirring in a bit of butter.
Gelatin with a meat sauce is used, from what I have read, to provide supplement the gelatin in the meat. I have seen recipes that call for veal stock, reduced veal stock; this supplies flavor and that gelatin.
