Steaks with Black Bean Sauce - Adapted from Indigo Restaurant

We didn't use rib-steaks but otherwise the recipe goes like this. Boil 1/2C white wine and one minced shallot in a sauce pan until reduced by 1/2. Prepare a roux but heating 1T butter with 1T flour gently. To the shallot mix, add 1C whipping cream and 1/4C black beans. Bring to a boil and add the roux, stirring as the sauce thickens. Stir in 1/2C cold butter cut in four pieces, one piece at a time. Add 1T fresh lemon juice and serve over the steaks.
We served the steaks with steamed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. For the potatoes you will need one head of roasted garlic which you prepare by cutting off the top of the head, drizzing on some olive oil and baking it for about one hour at 350 degrees. Squeeze the garlic from the cloves into your mother's recipe for mashed potatoes. Serve this dinner with a big red wine.
