Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 beef tenderloin grilling steaks (about 6 oz/175 g each)
  • 3/4 cups dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Method

In heavy skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; saute shallots and garlic until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, half each of the salt and pepper and the thyme; cook, stirring, until very soft and almost no liquid remains, about 6 minutes. Scrape into bowl.

Wipe out skillet. Brush steaks with remaining oil; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Sear over medium-high heat, turning once, until desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer to warm plate; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, add wine to skillet; cook, scraping up any brown bits, until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

Add mushrooms and any meat juices to pan. Combine butter with flour; stir into pan and cook until thickened. Serve with steaks.
