These juicy tenderloin steaks, lightly crusted with blue cheese and bread crumbs, are special enough for holiday dining. When drizzled with wine sauce, the beef melts in your mouth. —Tiffany Vancil, San Diego, California

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons dry bread crumbs
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced chives
  • Dash pepper
  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Madeira wine
  • 1/8 teaspoon browning sauce, optional

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the blue cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, chives and pepper. Press onto one side of each steak.
In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook steaks over medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in broth and wine. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in browning sauce if desired. Serve with steaks. Yield: 4 servings.

"Very good flavor! I couldn't get the rub to completely stay on the steaks when I turned them in the skillet, but I had made extra, so I added more once they were in the baking pan. The sauce really complemented the flavors."

"I made this for my husband's birthday dinner and it was perfect! Delicious, tender, great combination of flavors! I did not have any red wine so used a good quality dark balsamic vinegar and the gravy was amazing."
