hope on a string

Fillet Mignon in red wine glaze

Mostly just so I can remember for next time!

All measurements are approximate

glaze:
about 1.5 cups red wine (we went with a raven's wood zinfindel)
splash of red wine vinegar (1/8 cup ish)
1tbsp brown sugar
garlic powder
salt
pepper

bring to a boil
simmer to reduce for a while
remove from heat and whisk in 2tbsp butter
add about 1tsp of flour to a little of the reduction in a teacup, whisk back in to help with thickening.

guys, this was AMAZING!
