This is a very popular meat. Is it self serve or plated?

You need about 1/4 cup sauce per plate.

For 50 people, the optimum for this meat is 25 pounds.

A true bordelaise takes beef demiglace and a reduced wine, 2 tablespoons of demiglace per person and 1/4 cup red wine reduced to 1 tablespoon. Is this the sauce you have in mind?
