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

Melt butter and blend in flour. Cook and stir until the roux takes on a little color. Add gradually the beef consomm=82, white wine, and tomato pure=82 and stir until the sauce thickens.

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.
