How to make it
- Heat the olive oil and butter in a saute pan over medium heat, season the beef medallions with salt and pepper, and add to the hot pan.
- Turn the heat up to high and char both sides of the beef well.
- To keep the beef rare to medium rare, cook quickly, turning once only after the beef has browned on the first side.
- Remove the beef from the pan, place on a warm platter, and set aside.
- Add the diced onions and poblano peppers to the saute pan, evenly spread out and cook till wilted.
- Add the cumin and combine well to toast the spice again.
- Working carefully away from the flame, add the tequila to the pan, deglaze the pan by swirling the tequila and set back over low heat to reduce.
- Add the lime juice and reduce to almost dry before adding the beef stock.
- Reduce the stock by half over high heat and add the Grand Marnier and fresh orange zest.
- Cook for 2 minutes and then add the heavy cream.
- Do not allow to boil but gently simmer for 2 minutes before adding the salt and pepper.
- Serve the beef on a bed of sauce.
