Filet with Merlot Reduction

, ,

Serves 2

  • 1/2 c. beef broth
  • 1/4 c. Cooper-Garrod
  • Merlot
  • 1 tbsp seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 beef filets

In a saucepan over high heat, whisk together broth, Merlot, jam, and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce to about 1/3 cup. Meanwhile, wrap one slice of bacon around the side of each filet, securing with a toothpick as necessary. Preheat a skillet and sear the bacon sides; continue with the top and bottom of the filet, about 3-4 minutes per side, or longer for desired doneness. Put steaks on warmed plates and spoon sauce over to serve. Salt and pepper to taste.

Accompany with Cooper-Garrod Merlot
