I buy demi glace concentrate at Amazon but you could use beef broth with better than bouillon added to give it a deeper flavor.

Ingredients

2
ahi tuna filets
2 Tbsp
olive oil divided
2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
onion powder
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
ground thyme
1/2 c
dry red wine like cabernet sauvignon
1 c
demi glace or beef broth with 1 tbsp. beef bouillon
1 sprig(s)
fresh rosemary

Step-By-Step

1Take 1 tbsp. olive oil and mix with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and thyme. Rub all over tuna filets. Let sit 30 minutes

2Add the other tbsp olive oil to pan and add the butter. When pan is very hot sear the tuna steaks on each side. Cook until desired doneness. I like mine raw in the middle but warm.

3Remove from pan and let rest covered with foil. Pour red wine in pan and reduce by half. Add demi glace. Let reduce until a bit thickened.

4Pour over tuna and garnish with rosemary
