Need an Easy Sauce for Steak
- sivyaleah Feb 14, 2007 08:28 AM
Making filet mignon for dinner tonight. Was going to grill it, but now I'm thinking pan cooking might be better, so I can make a sauce to go w/it - just to do something different. Nothing too complicated, maybe something with shallots, herbs and wine? Nothing cheesy and heavy.
1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sherry wine vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
In a blender or food processor, combine the parsley, garlic, oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, ground black pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix well, but do not puree.
JNUNZMAN - I made your Chimichurri sauce tonight and served it with a grilled porterhouse and a roasted vidalia. With apologies to Badia Spices, your fresh formulation makes the jarred stuff taste like the canned spinach from grade school. Wow! You have helped change the way I will eat cattle in the future! Thanks.
Think I'd stick with a simpler formulation of what you've got, though JNUZMANs recipe sounds good, too (but for Filet Mignon?).....do pan drippings, some red wine you've got open, sautee the shallots.....maybe some butter, too, a little thyme or herbs de provence if you've got them around.....
What you're thinking sounds good to me. Saute the shallots in the pan after the steak comes out, deglaze w/ red wine and then add some butter to thicken.
