Savory Choice Demi-Glace Review
During a recent visit to Surfas Culinary District in Costa Mesa, I found this little package of Savory Choice Demi-Glace. Since I rarely make a true demi-glace at home, I thought it was the perfect candidate for my first product review. I purchased this myself and was not in contact with the company at all, just so you know! Hope you enjoy the recipe.
2 filet mignon steaks
Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
2 onion slices
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1/2 cup red zinfandel wine
1 package Savory Choice Beef Demi Glace
Drizzle steak with olive oil on both sides of the steak.
Sprinkle with kosher salt from the heavens on each side. Sprinkle with a generous amount of fresh cracked pepper.
Turn burner on medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and sear steaks 2-3 minutes each side.
Transfer steaks to another clean saute pan on top of a sliced onion each.
Add 1 tablespoon minced shallot to the hot steak pan, and deglaze with 1/2 cup red wine. Reduce by half.
While wine is reducing, finish the steaks (in the pan) on the grill or oven at 500 F.
After 3 minutes, the wine is reduced by half. Pour in the demi glace package. Strain the demi-glace. Pour some of the juice from the steaks into the sauce, and add 1/2 teaspoon butter.
Set steaks on plate, top with grilled onion, and drizzle with the demi glace.
