How to make it
- Season the meat with salt and pepper. In a pan, heat half of the olive oil. Add the chopped onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Add the meat and sear until browned on all sided. This will seal in the juices. Transfer the meat to a baking sheet and bake at 425F for 30 minutes for medium rare. DO NOT OVERCOOK.
- While the meat cooks, using the pan with the onion, carrots, celery and garlic mixture, add the wine, broth and tomato paste and cook over a medium-high heat. Add the bay leaf and thyme and cook the liquid until it reduces to about ½ to ¾ of a cup or about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine strainer. Stir in the cocoa and rosemary with a bit more salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a couple slices of beef tenderloin.
