Peppered Filets with Cherry Port Sauce for 2
2 beef tenderloin steaks (8 ounces each)
2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
1 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup dried cherries
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
2 teaspoons cold water
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Sprinkle steaks with pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the wine, onion, raisins, cherries and sugar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.
Combine the cornstarch, mustard, salt and water until smooth. Gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve sauce with steaks; sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 2 servings.
