MAKES: 8 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon browning sauce, optional
  • 8 beef tenderloin steaks (1-1/2 to 2 inches and 8 ounces each)
  • 24 uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


  1. In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and 1 teaspoon garlic in 2 tablespoons oil and 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Add wine or broth; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the parsley, basil and browning sauce if desired. Remove from the skillet; keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, cook steaks in 2 tablespoons oil and 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Return mushroom mixture to the pan; heat through.
  3. Meanwhile, in another skillet, combine the remaining butter and oil. Add the shrimp and remaining garlic; cook and stir until shrimp turn pink. Serve with the steaks. Yield: 8 servings.

"We had this dish for Christmas Eve. It was very nice...easy and quick to prepare. It definitely felt festive for the occasion. My guess is we'll make it again on a non-holiday night, but likely without the shrimp."
