Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 2 beef Tenderloin Steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Pinot Noir or other dry red wine
  • 3 tablespoons cognac or brandy
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

  2. Add wine, cognac and soy sauce to skillet; bring to a boil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Whisk in cream and brown sugar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. (Sauce will turn a rich chocolate-brown color.)
