If you have any recipes, I would appreciate them.
Fillet medalions ( tenderloin ) with chocolate and port sauce.
Season steaks well on both sides with sea salt and crushed peppercorns. Sear on both sides until done to your liking. Set aside to rest.
For the sauce:
1/4 cup of port wine
1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup of beef stock
1 tsp of chopped fresh rosemary
1 small shallot finely grated
1 ounch of bittersweet chocolate ( good quality ) grated
1 knob of butter.
Soften shallot in butter, add port and balsamic and reduce till syrupy. Add stock and rosemary and bring to a simmer. Slowly whisk in the chocolate and cook till slightly thickened.
Pour a bit over each steak and serve.
