Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium to high heat. Once it is hot,add the butter and the olive oil, and brown the fillet on all sides.
Note Take care not to overcook the meat, and ask your guests how they like their meat cooked. Remove the meat from the pan, cover and leave to rest in a warm oven for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Compote
Add the chilli to the red wine and the port, then cook in a saucepan, uncovered, until the liquid has reduced by half. Add the beef stock and the balsamic vinegar, then whisk in the butter.

Stir in the chocolate and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the cherries. Keep warm until ready to serve.

To serve
Cut the fillet into slices and divide into four portions. Arrange on the serving plates and pour the warm compote over the meat just before serving. Serve with roast-vegetable kebabs.
