~~Gourmet Girl News Flash~~
For some reason in the past 10 years I have turned into one of those people that just don’t eat alot of red meat. It was never a consious or health decision, I just always choose seafood or chicken – I like it better. Not that I don’t appreciate a good cut of meat and trust me, a good hamburger every now and then is tasty!! But that is about the extent of it… or it used to be.
Not long ago I would proudly say to myself, “I don’t remember the last time… or anytime for that matter, that I ordered a steak at a restaurant”. Just hearing me say that sounded odd – even to me!
That now has changed…. Brace yourself, this is a good one!
At one of my favorite restaurants a while back while I was glancing over the seafood entrees, an interesting Beef dish caught my eye. This was a Coffee Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Oyster Mushrooms with an Espresso Cream Sauce!! I DO love Coffee so it automatically sounded yummy and extremely interesting – I had to try it.
The dish was wonderfully presented on a triangle-shaped plate that was visually exciting and refreshing to see someting other than a round plate! The Tenderloin was crusted with coffee and cooked to perfection, the mushrooms were silky and sexy and the potatoes were rich, creamy and delicious. But the sauce…oh! the sauce. Oh My the Sauce! This was the best tasting sauce that I have ever tasted. Sounds kind of strange – coffee and steak – but it is actually the perfect marriage! Rich and earthy, fantastically delicious, lip-smacking goodness. This would be good over anything (seriously!), but it was the PERFECT compliment to an outstanding dish!!
Bravo – Bravo – Goes to The New South Cafe for creating an interesting, memorable, fantastic entree that is out of this world !! Check it out for yourself if you are in Savannah!!
