Beef tournedos rossini (Tournedos Alla Rossini)


  • 4 thick slices bread, cut into large rounds
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) butter + more for buttering bread
  • 4 thick beef tenderloins (3.75 centimeters)
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 milliliter) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 milliliter) pepper
  • 1 cup (240 milliliters) marsala wine
  • 4 slices foie gras
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) flour
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) red peppercorns

  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) chopped fresh parsley


  1. Toast the rounds of bread. Butter them. Set on a plate. Season each piece with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat two tablespoons (30 milliliters) butter in a skillet until it turns a hazelnut colour. Add the tenderloins to the skillet and fry three minutes on both sides to brown. Finish in an oven at 375 F (190 C) for six to seven minutes. Let rest five minutes.
  3. Sear foie gras one to two minutes per side in another pan. Set aside.
