      Cheryl: This was wonderful! Took a while to reduce the sauce, but it went perfectly with the beef tenderloin (and red wine)! Thanks for sharing.

      This is one of the best dishes I have made on Zaar, the sauce is too die for, I only wish I could rate this much higher! I made axactly as written only I increased all ingredients to serve 6 people (2 large eaters!)... in step #3 I cooked the sauce for about 20 minutes uncovered in place of 10 minutes to reduce.. this is easy to make and huge on taste, I plan om making this with pork cutlets... thanks for a wonderful recipe Cheryl!
