Asturias fillet steak

    35 min

    I had this gorgeous fillet steak at a Spanish restaurant. This is my version. If you can find a Spanish blue cheese like Cabrales or Valdeon, that is best, though any blue will do in a pinch!

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 (170g) beef fillet steaks
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 small onion, minced
    • 1 tablespoon paprika
    • 4 tablespoons dry white wine
    • 125ml beef stock
    • 110g Spanish blue cheese, such as Cabrales or Valdeon
    • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until smoking. Season steaks to taste with salt and pepper, then sear on both sides in hot oil. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until steaks reach desired doneness, about 6 minutes in total for medium-rare. Remove steaks from frying pan and keep warm.
    2. Stir in minced onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with paprika and cook for an additional minute. Increase heat to medium-high, then pour in wine. Simmer until the wine has reduced by half, then add the beef stock, return to a simmer, and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the crumbled blue cheese until just melted.
    3. To serve, pour the sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

    We loved this. We found the calabres cheese at the Spanish Table and, while we were there, picked up a couple bottles of Spanish red (a Rioja and a Ribera del Duero). They were both good matches. But we kept gravitating toward the Rioja, which had been too much wine the night before with the Pollo al Ajillo (also on Allrecipes) -- the Ribera was the better match with the chicken.  -  21 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
