1/3 cup dry red wine or beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream
3 ounces Stilton or blue cheese, crumbled and divided
Garnish: fresh tarragon sprigs
1. Rub fillets with tarragon and pepper.
2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook fillets 4 to 5 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet, and keep warm.

Wine- Mènage à Trois
Mènage à Troi is a California white wine that contains a blend of Chardonnay, Moscato, and Chenin Blanc. It is fruity in nature, with crisp acidity and hints of citrus. The best part though is the price, it sells for less than 10 bucks, and worth every penny!
