'"glaze de viande" is French for "meat glaze." It is simply high quality stocks that have been slowly skimmed and reduced to a syrupy consistency. When reduced to about half volume the resultant is referred to as a demi-glaze and when reduced to a about a fourth of their original volume the product is called a glaze. It's used to add flavor and color to sauces. It can be made at home or bought in jars and is usually called "meat glaze" or "meat extract."
