"A fabulous recipe with a French flair, original recipe from and changed to suit ingredients I had on hand. Beurre Rouge is a red wine and butter sauce. This came out restaurant quality, very very good, very very fattening, need I say more?"

Ready In:




  • Coat skillet with olive oil using a paper towel. Heat skillet over medium high heat until a piece of butter dropped in begins to sizzle immediately.
  • Place steaks in pan and let them cook for 6 minutes on one side, flip and cook for 6 minutes on the other side. Place on a plate and put into a warmed oven, covered. (I heated oven to 350°F and then shut it off, covering the plate with another plate).
  • Reduce heat to medium. In same pan, drop in the onions and garlic (or shallots) and saute for approx 2 min until they begin to caramelize. Deglaze pan with red wine and vinegar, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan to add flavor. Reduce liquid to half.
  • Slowly whisk in one tbsp butter at a time, you have to do this slowly or the sauce will separate. This could take up to 10 minutes. When all of the butter is incorporated, season with salt to taste, pour sauce immediately over the steaks on each plate and grind a bit of black pepper over each.

Mom with two grown kids, daughter 17 and son 22. Daughter is incredibly picky to the point of watching me cook to be sure there is nothing she wont eat in the menu and inspecting each forkfull before she eats it and wont eat anything with onions or the aroma of onions or if there is an onion any where near her food or within 50 miles. Dinners can be very stressful. I absolutely LOVE to cook, and love to try new foods. We lead pretty busy lives, so quick healthy and tasty earns big points. Though not a diabetic I am on the diabetes exchange diet in an effort to drop 20 lbs and I am almost at my goal, only 3 more lbs to go!!
