Sylvia the Butcher's Stirloin with Red Wine sauce - (for 2 people)

1 eating spoon of olive oil
1 eating spoon of butter (garlic butter is also recommended!)
1 piece of sirloin / tenderloin (500 grams)

*For the sauce*

1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic, finely chopped
1 eating spoon of flower
1 eating spoon of butter
300 ml of red wine (preferably a "rich" tasting wine - not a fruity)
200 ml of beef stock

*** The Recipe***

It's best to prepare the sauce first - In a pan, heat up the butter and fry the garlic / onions for a bit (don't fry them too long, just until they get a bit of color / are glazed). Then, add the flower and bake that for a bit. Finally, add the red wine and the beef stock and cook the sauce down until it's been thickened a bit.

For the sirloin / tenderloin: Preheat the oven at 180 celcius (or 350 / 360 fahrenheit) Put the butter and olive oil in a pan and once molten and heated, put the sirloin / tenderloin in the pan - don't bake it, just make sure the outside is golden brown. Then, put the sirloin / tenderloin in a baking tray and into the oven for about 15 minutes. Make sure to regularly check on the meat and check if it's cooked well enough. The thicker the stirloin / tenderloin, the longer it'll need to cook properly. You'll want to achieve a medium / rare stirloin / tenderloin.

After 15 minutes of cooking into the oven, take the meat out of the oven and let it rest for approximately half of the time it had (in this case, 7.30 minutes / 8 minutes).

If needed, heat the sauce up again and put it in a gravy bowl.

It's best served with some fried potato slices / wedges and some vegetables.

Enjoy your (Christmas) dinner!

*PS* - we had some garlic butter that we had made for on bread as a left over and cooked the meat with it - it's wonderful. Also recommended is that you add a bit of rosemary and don't forget to put some pepper and salt on the stirloin / tenderloin before you bake it in a pan!

*PPS* - Turtledove has kindly reminded me to say that it's "Flour" instead of Flower :)

Strawberry Jalapeno White Sangria Recipe


½ cup of brandy
½ cup of pomegranate juice
..." cup of agave
¼ cup of lemon juice
2 cups of mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries)
½ jalapeno, sliced (seeds removed)
bottle of white wine (I used Reisling, but you could use Pinor Grigio or Moscato)
1 cup of club soda

In a pitcher add, berries, jalapeno slices, and brandy. Using a wooden spoon, muddle the berries a little bit. (maybe 3-4 smashed and thats it)
Next add pomegranate juice, lemon juice, agave, and white wine. Stir.
Cover the top of the pitcher with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 6 hours. (or overnight)
Right before you are about to serve add the club soda, stir, and serve.

So yummy

That sounds absolutely delicious Sultry - I suppose it tastes fresh due to the fruit, but spicy because you add the jalapeno. The Riesling Wine adds a bit of sweetness to it. But must've been one hell of a cleaning job for that pitcher, due to all the fruit :p

Try taking some haricot beans in a tomato sauce and adding them on top of a cooked base of flour, water, and yeast.
