Scotch beef filet with gorgonzola sauce!!!!


For the Italian version click here!!!!
Hello everyone from Paris....Hope you are enjoying your sunday. I'm almost ready to go out for lunch...the sun is shining (behind big clouds though), and the air is fresh. But I do really hope I can enjoy a nice french meal sitting outside.... Today's recipe is the romantic dinner we enjoyed on our 10th anniversary day.... I was supposed to cook the meal, but my lovely man was worried I would ruin this fantastic meat so he end up cooking dinner.
This meat was absolutely fantastic, I love scotch beef and I'm so grateful for the M&S at Heathrow airport, so that I've got the chance to do a bit of shopping before boarding for my flights back to Rome. 

2 filet steaks 
1 tbs of butter
half cup os beef stock
some red wine
gorgonzola piccante to taste
250 ml of double cream
salt and pepper 
Side dish:
swiss chard
extra virgin olive oil 100% italian (OLIO DANTE)

Heat up an heavy based pan, the pan has to be very hot. Season the meat with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes at each side in melted butter.
Transfer the steaks in a hot plate, cover with foil and let it rest for a few minutes. In the meantime prepare the gorgonzola sauce.
In the same pan, heat up the beef stock with the red wine, bring it to the  boil and reduce. Then simply add the double cream and crumbled gorgonzola. Bring the sauce to the boil, and let the gorgonzola melt. Keep starring and cook until you reach the desired thickness. Season if necessary.
Slice the meat and pour over the sauce, serve with some steamed swiss chard, simply seasoned with salt and extra virgin olive oil, sliced roast potatoes and fresh seasonal salad.
