Steak with shallot wine sauce.

We are having the time of our life during our vacation. Travelling with friends and many children may be challenging to some extent, however in our case, it has been phenomenal.

Dinner is the best part as we all come together and pinch in. Tonight’s dinner was a compilation to each of us favorite recipes. The steak with shallot wine sauce was voted in therefore I had the easy part of the dinner preparations. Easy to prepare as everyone likes their steaks cooked to medium. The shallot wine sauce is prepared in the same pan that the steaks are cooked in, less to clean. Scraping up bits of steak gives a rich bold flavor to the sauce.

I like to cut the shallots very thin so they cook easier and faster.

All adults participate on preparing dinner. Table set, food ready to be eaten… the night is ours to enjoy.

We are fortunate that the place we are staying has a well furnished kitchen so we do not have to improvise too much.

The recipe for the fillets was doubled for our dinner.
