2 tablespoons butter

2 shallots, finely sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 cup Myers's dark rum

4 cups Chicken stock

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

2 tablespoons molasses


4 filet mignon steaks, about 8 ounces each

Olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

12 Peruvian purple potatoes, cooked and skin removed, cut into 3/4-inch dice

1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced small

1 red onion, diced small

1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves
