  • This is an old style sauce that never fails to please.
  • I used fillet steak bcause it cooks really quickl but stays tender.
  • I love to use a few good shakes of white pepper to add a new dimension to the flavour.
  • Shallots are also sometimes known as green onions, but whatever you call them, they are the long green onions that like a little like skinny leeks.
