Beef Tenderloin in Mushroom Sauce
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Made this for the first time for my wife. for our one year anniversary. she loved the way the gravy tasted, very simple to make would recommend this to anyone.
Delicious sauce, My husband loved it, I will be doing it regularly :)
My husband and I have made this for years. We have the 1998 Taste of Home cookbook where we discovered the recipe. Easy and delicious.
I chose this recipe to make for me wife for Valentines day and it was awesome. I made the brussel sprouts and instead of a traditional mashed potato, I chose to use a garlic mashed twice backed potato. I also followed the suggestion below and doubled the sauce which I highly recommend, even if you do not like a lot of sauce. It goes well with the left over potato's anyway. I did not measure the temp of the steaks instead I followed the suggestions for time and added based on the size of mine. I turned mine at 6 minutes. I had one that was about an inch thick and one that was more than that and they were both about 6-8 ounces. I like medium rare and my wife medium and it worked out perfect to cook them at the same time. I would add that to remember to baste the steaks regularly to avoid drying out due to to the method of cooking. Give this a try and you will love it. Thank you.
This was amazing! Doubled the sauce to put on mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again.
I just couldn't make myself cook this in a skillet - I love char grilled and have NEVER cooked steak in a skillet unless it was a cube steak. I will try but am very skeptical.
I made this tonight for dinner, but I did change some things based on ingredients I had in the house. This was very good. I did not have tenderloin so I used rib eye steaks. I cooked them for 4 minutes on each side and they were perfect (medium). I did saut? shallots and garlic with the mushroom and deglazed my pan with 1/2 cup of dry sherry and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and I did use a 10 oz can of beef consume instead of broth. So I did change a few things but it was oh so good. The gravy was great over the steak and mashed potatoes. This was a very easy and fancy dish.

I have not made this so did not give it a rating. PLEASE don't cook to 145 F if you want medium rare. The temperature will rise once removed from the pan and you'll get at best a medium well to well done steak. For medium rare, your steak should be at 130 - 135 F and then tented to rest. It would be a shame to ruin an expensive piece of tenderloin.
