This is a sauce for beef tenderloin or other broiled steak.

This recipe is derived from the kitchen of the Hotel Cr'-Magnon, in Les
Eyzies-de-Tayac. The hotel is nestled into the rock shelter of Cr'-Magnon,
the site where, in 1868, Eduard Lartet discovered the remains of a human
that has subsequently become the type specimen for Homo sapiens, the
Cr'-Magnon Man. These remains are over 40,000 years old.
