Grilled Beef Tenderloin Steak with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Grilled Beef Tenderloin Steak with Roasted Garlic Sauce. I’m using 3 little pieces of filet mignon or the tips of the tenderloin. The filet mignon weighed each about 125 grams and cost me totally about 25 USD.  Pretty pricey, but i guess it’s worthed since filet mignon is considered as the most tender cuts of beef. I used to pan seared my steak before, but i guess i’m gonna grilled my tenderloin today to infused the smokey flavour into the flesh even more. I serving my filet mignon with roasted garlic sauce, don’t get me wrong, roasted garlic got much more milder garlicky flavour than sauteed or deep fried garlic. Perfectly roasted garic got  caramelized sweet and also savoury hint, you can even barely eat it like roasted potato and it goes well too with the beef steaks.

Making oven roasted garlic recipe is so easy to do. Simply cut the tips end of the garlic bulp to made it a lot easier to extract after roasted, toss the garlic with olive oil and season it with salt and black pepper evenly, then lay them with the bottom side down in the oven tray. Use a big enough baking tray, so the garlic are not too crowded. You want room between them for the moisture to escape, which concentrates the garlic flavor. Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending of the garlic bulb size) in 482ºF (250ºC), or until the garlic are completely softened and wilted, and start to wrinkle and some of the them charred. The garlic bulb may take longer to roast, depending on the size and the ammount of your garlic. The oven roasted garlic will keep for about three days in the refrigerator and about 6 days if you packed it with oil, i also can be frozen for up to six months.

I also using Heston Blumenthal perfect steak method to dry aging my tenderloin. My Perfectly Seared Ribeye Steak & Creamy Mushrooms Sauce Recipe was the first attemp with the Hesto’s method and the result is quite satisfying.  The step is dry aging the beef steak in the fridge by placing the steak above metal wire rack and left it undisturbed for at least two days.  The beef aging concentrates the flavour in the steak by evaporation and also break down or tenderized the meat by active enzymes works. The beef is ready when it’s outer layer turn into some waxy and firmer texture when you touch it. It’s no needed to peel off the outside layer of the dry aged tenderloin since the waxy layer is so thin. Never forget to take the steaks out of the fridge for a couple of minutes until it reach the room temperature before you cooked it.

Braised Venison Deer Short Ribs with Wine, Tomato and Saffron Recipe

braised venison ribs wine tomato saffron recipe

Braised venison short ribs is not kinda daily meal for me, then once i had bunch of venison ribs and also the tenderloin, it simply made me happy. From the internet search i read about the cheaper price for venison and any game meat compare to the regular cattle beef abroad, but that’s not gonna happen in my place. Basically, the mith said that venison meat is a powerfull aphrodisiac rocket it’s price tag in Asia. Well, that’s a kinda funny things across Asian decent people. This kind of game protein is usually served with liquor callled arak. The alcohol content is a potent blood vessel dilatator that made the corpora cavernosa (erectile tissue) that mostly consist of blood capillary can dilatated and  filled with the blood even better. This actually the same fact about dringking snake’s blood and bile, the secret is the liquor that mixed within it. I guess i’m keeping that secrets for me for next following years after i get married, i’m using it now for a gourmet adventure.

Well, actually i  not only ‘forced’ my sister to purchased the venison short ribs, but also the tenderloin. I’m making a homemade dry cured venison or Italian Bresaola di Cervo, stay tune on Dentist Chef for that recipe.

braised venison  red wine tomato and saffron

Braised venison with red wine or white wine is a common gamey meat preparation in western cuisine. I’m using two kinds of wine here, my last half cup of red wine and white wine. Instead of wine, you can also using some asian liquor like rice wine or shaoxing wine. I also added some kashmiri or Indian saffron within the simmering broth to enhance the flavour and the looks. The vivid yellow color is a result of a pinch of it’s strands. Since my sister like a tangy and slightly sweet flavour i brought some of my homemade sun dried tomato for pleased her. Slightly different from my previously Braised Beef Oxtail with Red Wine, Tomatoes and Carrot, this braised venison ribs is not taste that sweet. For the garnish, i add some torch ginger bloosom on it.
