Olive oil as needed
Heavy cream1 1/2 quarts

Chopped Candied Pecans (recipe follows) or chopped toasted pecans3 cups

Spread pecans on parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake in 375° F oven 10 to 13 minutes. Cool. (Do not spread on paper towels or nuts will stick.) Chop pecans; store airtight. Yield: about 3 cups

*  *Beef Petite Tender Medallions are cut from the Beef Petite Tender Roast (IMPS/NAMP 1114F), a small separate muscle that rests on top of the shoulder near the top blade. The Beef Petite Tender Roast is separated from the Beef Chuck, Shoulder Clod (IMPS/NAMP 114) by following the natural seam. All external fat is removed and it is then cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick medallions.
