"This is a recipe that I got from my mother-in-law. She doesn't measure, so it took me a while to get it close. The gravy is close to the one they use in Portuguese restaurants."

6 (4 ounce)
beef tenderloin steaks
This is a traditional portuguese dish. My mom makes it all the time and she serves it 2 ways-1 as a sandwhich with fresh french rolls and butter(called a bifana) which is my favorite, and 2 served with home made fries and a fried egg(this is the way they serve it in restaurants in Portugal). We marinade it a little diff, we don't use water and instead of the chili and white pepper, we use 2 small red peppers. We marinade it over night also. This is my favorite!!!
This was ok. The gravy is nice but the wine is a bit overpowering.
I was in Portugal this summer & had this dish. I have added some Balsamic vinegar to give it abit of an edge(Think they used that in Portugal, as it had a slightly sharp taste).
Also they had sliced sauted potatoe around the dish.
This was incredibly good, but, be warned, not for the faint of heart where garlic is concerned! The first time I made this I served it with mashed potatoes and drizzled the sauce over them too. My son's friend said it was the best steak he'd ever had in his life, and this from an 18-year-old male! I didn't change a thing. Make sure you use good steak, and don't overcook. The total cooking time might be a bit long if you like
your steak medium to medium-rare, as I do.
I made this for a small dinner party and the beef turned out absolutely fantastic that my guests are still talking about it 6 months after. I wouldn't change anything about it. Just perfect. Absolutely a perfect treat!
I really enjoyed this recipe. Will make again.
Just enough spice to add a kick. Saute assorted peppers and onions for a nice side over white rice.
This was an amazing dish! I agree with one of the other reviewers that you should make sure you use a good wine. I followed the directions exactly and would not change a thing. I cannot wait to make this for my sister and brother-in-law next time they are over. This one is a winner! My family really liked this dish!
