Syrah Blackberry Reduction Sauce Ingredients
Marinade PrepPour the wine into a large bowl. Add the shallots, garlic, thyme, and rosemary leaves and gently stir to create a marinade. Place the fillets into the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Remove the fillets from the marinade and pat dry with a paper towel. Season the meat with salt and pepper to taste and lightly coat with olive oil. Sear the meat in a hot cast iron skillet. Cook at 350 degrees until you reach the desired level. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillet. Allow the meat to rest 3-5 minutes before serving.
Syrah Blackberry Sauce
In a small saucepan, cook the shallots in olive oil. Add the blackberries and sugar, stirring continuously. Add the wine, stir some more, and turn the heat up to bring to a boil. Once the sauce has come to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow the sauce to simmer until the wine starts to thicken. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the sauce over the fillet mignon. Need another bottle of 2013 Dragon's Kiss to pair with your steak? Not a problem. Get one here.
