Peppered Filets with Cherry Port Sauce for 2 Recipe
I like to serve my peppery beef steaks with a light, vegetable side dish. Creative cooks can substitute dried cranberries for the cherries and feta for blue cheese.Barb Lento, Houston, Pennsylvania
- 2 beef tenderloin steaks (8 ounces each)
- 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
- 1 cup dry red wine
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/3 cup golden raisins
- 1/3 cup dried cherries
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
- Dash salt
- 2 teaspoons cold water
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Sprinkle steaks with pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the wine, onion, raisins, cherries and sugar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.
- Combine the cornstarch, mustard, salt and water until smooth. Gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve sauce with steaks; sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 2 servings.
