PJ KABOS Healthy High-Phenolic Recipe:

Steak with Shallot Cream Sauce and Blanched Broccoli


  • 2 beef steaks

  • PJ KABOS Family Reserve Organic - Robust 4 tbsp

  • 30 gr (2 tbsp) butter

  • 250 gr (1 cup) shallots chopped

  • 1 tbsp peppercorns, crushed

  • salt to taste

  • 50 gr (3 tbsp) rum

  • 150 gr (½ cup) cream

  • PJ KABOS Truffle Oil (optional)

  • 1 broccoli, head


Prior to cooking: Remove the two steaks from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Pat dry with paper towels. Drizzle PJ KABOS Robust olive oil generously on both sides of the steaks. Apply salt and pepper to taste.

For the Shallot Cream Sauce: Over medium-low heat, melt the butter and 2 tablespoons of PJ KABOS Robust olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add the shallots, seasoning them with salt and crushed peppercorns; sauté for one minute. When browned (around 5-7 minutes), incorporate 3 tablespoons of high-quality Rum and allow it to evaporate. Finally, add the cream and let it simmer uncovered for 2-3 minutes. For additional flavor, consider mixing in PJ KABOS truffle oil. Using a blender, mix until the sauce becomes a smooth consistency.

Seared Filet: Heat a pan to high temperature, adding enough PJ KABOS oil to coat the bottom of the pan (Note: a grill may be used). Just as the pan starts emitting smoke, place the steaks on it and refrain from moving them. Sear the steaks for 2-3 minutes, then flip and sear the opposite side for an additional 2-3 minutes. Sear the steak’s edges for about 1 minute; remove and transfer to a plate and allow to rest covered with foil for 7 minutes before slicing.

Blanched Broccoli: Boil the broccoli in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, then refresh it in cold water to preserve flavor, color and texture. Before serving, season with pepper and a drizzle of PJ KABOS’ Family Reserve Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Robust (the black bottle shown).

Place the sliced steak on serving plates; make a bed of the shallot peppercorn cream sauce for the steak (or cover on top) and serve with broccoli.
