       6 T  Butter
     1/2 c  Flour
   1 1/4 c  Good beef consommé

       2 T  Madeira
   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 consommé, white wine, and
   tomato pureé and stir until the sauce thickens.  Cover the pan and
   simmer for 1/2 hour.  Add the truffle, finely chopped, mushrooms, and
   Madiera. Heat without boiling and serve.
   This recipe is derived from the kitchen of the Hotel Cro-Magnon, in
   Les Eyzies-de-Tayac.  The hotel is nestled into the rock shelter of
   Cro-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 Cro-Magnon Man.  These remains are over 40,000
   years old.
