Steak au Poivre

Rate this Recipe

Serves 2

Steak and chocolate sauce? Oh, yeah!

Ingredients:

2 beef tenderloin steaks
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns, crushed
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1/4 cup port wine
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup condensed beef consommé, undiluted
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1/2 ounce bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Directions:

  1. Brush steaks with 1 tablespoon oil and then salt and pepper steaks.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a small skillet set over medium heat. Add steaks to skillet and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until meat reaches desired doneness (using thermometer, 145 degrees for medium-rare, 160 degrees for medium, and 170 degrees for well-done). Remove steaks from skillet, and keep steaks warm.
  3. Heat remaining oil in the same skillet you cooked the steaks in, and saute shallot until tender. Add wine and vinegar to skillet; stir to loosen any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Bring wine-vinegar mixture to a boil; cook and stir until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Add beef consommé and rosemary to skillet; bring to a boil. Add chocolate; stir and cook until sauce is thickened and chocolate is melted.
  4. Serve sauce with steaks.
Course: Dinner
