Mother’s Day is the time to honour and cherish the special bond of love that you and your mother share.
She has done so much for you; the least you can do is acknowledge her hard work and selfless love by pampering her the African Original way.
Amarula is an indulgent brand that allows you to discover the majestic wonders and hidden secrets of untamed Africa and we have a delicious recipe for seared beef fillet with chocolate chilli and Amarula sauce.
Seared beef fillet with chocolate chilli and Amarula sauce
4 x 200 g beef fillet steaks
15 ml olive oil
1 chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
10 ml finely chopped chilli
125 ml Amarula
60 ml tomato puree
250 ml beef stock
45 ml red wine or red vinegar
30 g dark chocolate
Side salad, for serving
Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan and sauté onion, garlic and chilli for about 2 minutes. Add the Amarula, tomato puree, beef stock, red wine or red vinegar and dark chocolate and stir well. Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes and set aside.
Cover a griddle pan with some olive oil and heat until piping hot. Grill the steaks for 3 to 4 minutes per side until medium-rare (depending on the thickness of the steaks). Serve covered with the chocolate chilli and Amarula sauce, with a side salad.
