Pomegranate-Burgundy Sauce for Filet Mignon
- Ready In:
2 saucy steaks
- Cook steaks in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high. Add the steaks and cook 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to an ovenproof dish and place in a 200 degree oven. (I include this because the recipe talked about how to cook the steaks, but I'm only interested in the sauce.).
- Return the skillet to medium heat and add 1 tsp oil and the shallot. Saute until the shallot has softened, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook for one minute. Add pomegranate juice and the stock, then bring to a simmer and cook until reduced to 1/3 cup. Add cornstarch mixed with water, then cook until thickened.
- Spoon the sauce over the filets and serve (garnished with freshly chopped chives and pomegranate seeds, if desired).

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
<p>I teach middle school ELA in a public school here. I like to cook sauces mostly. I have just begun to cook OAMC and make-ahead since acquiring a chest deep freeze. I love looking at all of the posted recipes on here! My day begins with checking out the previous day's new recipes add-ons, the chef of the day, and the most recent forum postings for OAMC. My pet peeves are Curry Chicken from a local restaurant (which seems to go with the more curry powder is more theory) and people who don't like flavorful foods. Update (5 months late, but sue me): I am the proud mama of a beautiful red-haired boy as of April 26, 2010. Already, his favorite foods are: bananas, carrots, pumpkin, applesauce, and roasted pears. He doesn't like potatoes; I know, go figure.</p> <p><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /></p>
