Pepper-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Chocolate-Port Sauce Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was in fact, Excelent! I did make a few alterations to the original recipe. First, I used a bonless rib eye roast insted of tenderloin. I had no shallots so I substituted onion, garlic and ginger. The ginger flavor was subtle but added complexity. I used boulion insted of beef stock. I added some chopped bacon to add some smookey meat flavor. I thought it could use a thickener, so I added a teaspoon of flour/water. Next time, I think I would chop the onions and garlic a little larger to keep the sauce more chunky. I trippled the recipe (6 servings) for the sauce because it looked so good. Now I have leftovers.

Incredible!!!! I had something similar in Canada, and the restaurant added blue cheese on the top, so I added blue cheese and the two flavors were wonderful together.

This sauce was amazing ! I carmelized the shallots and sprinkled them over the top instead of mincing them and putting them in the sauce. I set the steak over roasted red potato rounds (cooked in olive oil until crispy). The flavors and textures were awesome. I also accompanied the fillet with a sea scallop. I think the sauce mixed even better with the scallop ! There's a local restaurant that does a simila sauce that everyone raves about, but this sauce is superior. Thanks !

I was very excited about this recipe, but was very unhappy with the way it turned out. For some reason, the sauce tasted very salty and bitter. I used red wine instead of port though, which may have had something to do with it. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.

The sauce was simply to die for! I made the recipe exactly as written except I used choice petite sirloin and grilled it outside. The sauce may sound strange, but it it is superb! You must try it to believe it! Makes a romantic entre for you and your special someone.
