When our kids are visiting Grandma, I make this recipe for just my husband, Derek, and me. It's a recipe my mother-in-law has been using for more than 30 years. I especially look forward to preparing it as part of a special Valentine's Day menu.—Denise McNab, Warrington, Pennsylvania

MAKES: 2 servings


  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2/3 cup chicken or beef broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon browning sauce, optional


  1. 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 reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Remove to a serving platter; keep warm.
  2. To pan juices, add the mushrooms, onions and remaining butter; saute until vegetables are tender. Add the flour, salt and pepper; gradually stir in broth until smooth. Add browning sauce if desired. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with the steaks. Yield: 2 servings.

I made this for an early Valentine's dinner for my husband of 25+ years and it was delicious! I did use part water and part red cooking wine and added extra mushrooms and green onions. This will definitely be a go-to recipe for special occasions. Will try with broth next time because I think I will like it even better!

I used red wine as suggested by a previous post. This was delicious and very simple to make. Enjoyed!

We grilled our steaks instead of cooking them in pan so I think we missed some flavor from not cooking the mushrooms in the pan juices. I added a small amount of Dale sauce to the mushrooms and it still tasted great. Very easy!
