Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin With Chocolate Port Sauce

If you have a special someone who is a chocolate lover like mine, this would be a great way to charm them on that day! I posted this last year and I am reblogging it. The mixture of beef, pepper and chocolate seems odd but remember that opposites attract and make a good combination! xxxxxx Natascha
