5/ get rid of most of the fat from the casserole and the shallots as well then put the casserole again on the heat, pour 3 soup spoonfuls of pineapple juice in it plus the vinegar and still siring, let cook until it becomes a caramel (here called a “gastrique”), add the cream, let it boil then add the pineapple cubes, salt and black pepper, make it boil again, add the mustard, blend the whole in an electric blender until it is well uniform then through a sieve and keep this sauce hot in a bain-marie
6/ separate the bulgur grains with a fork adding a little olive oil ; put it into 2 small ramekins, put one ramekin on a plate and 2 heart shapes tournedos on each side of it, a little sauce around and the remaining sauce in a sauced boat
