How To Prepare Chateaubriand Sauce

Named for French romantic novelist and statesman Francois Rene Vicomte de Chateaubriand (1768 – 1848, the recipe was created by his chef Montmireil. Many think of chateaubriand, as a cut of meat but it is not.

It is a recipe that most food historians cannot agree on. However, the center section of the tenderloin is the cut most often employed. This is one simple version.

There is a post for Chateaubriand for Two that I encourage you to check out. This Chateaubriand Sauce recipe is so you can serve this wonderful sauce with other cuts of beef or veal.

My Top Choice for Demi Glace

There are several really good commercial Demi Glace products available now to home cooks. One of my favorites is Demi Glace Gold and it is available at a good price at Amazon. It is a bit more expensive than some of the other brands but that's because it is All-natural, no chemicals, non-GMO, no preservatives, no MSG, and no fillers. I've been using this product for more than 20 years for my sauces, soups, stews and stocks and think you will enjoy it too.
