Beef Tenderloin in Mushroom Sauce
I ran across this recipe in "Taste of Home" and thought it looked easy and very appropriate!
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
4 tablespoons butter, divided
2 beef tenderloin steaks or fillets (1 inch thick)
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup chicken or beef broth
1/8 teaspoon browning sauce, optional
In a large skillet, heat oil and 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.
Cook steaks for 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat is done as desired (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°)
Remove to a serving platter; keep warm.
To pan juices, add the mushrooms, onions and remaining butter; saute until tender.
Add flour, salt and pepper; gradually stir in broth until smooth.
Add browning sauce if desired.
Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes.
Spoon over the steaks. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
Life is just a chance to grow a soul.
