This is as tender, tempting and timesaving as it gets--a recipe suitable for company or a romantic treat for two.
teaspoons cracked black pepper
beef tenderloin steaks, about 3/4 inch thick (about 1 1/2 lb)
cup finely chopped shallots or green onions
tablespoon butter or margarine
cup brandy or Progresso™ beef flavored broth
cup Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
cup sour cream
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
Press pepper onto both sides of beef.
Grill beef uncovered 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 7 to 8 minutes on each side for medium doneness (160°F) or until desired doneness.
While beef is grilling, melt butter in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallots in butter, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in brandy and broth. Cook over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until mixture is slightly reduced. Stir in sour cream. Serve with beef.
Arrange some fragrant flowers and light some aromatic candles to set a tender tone for the evening.
Tenderloin doneness preferences and grill temperatures vary greatly, so check steaks after 3 or 4 minutes or before you flip these little loins.
