  1. Over medium high heat, gently cook beef tenderloin in 2 tablespoons of butter for about 2 minutes, until just seared on all sides. You will still be able to see red. Remove from pan and set aside in a rimmed dish or baking sheet so that you collect the juices.
  2. Return the pan to medium-high heat and cook the shallots and mushrooms in remaining butter until soft and wilted, about 5 minutes. Mix cornstarch into cold beef broth, whisk to blend. Pour into pan, and stir together with shallots and mushrooms until thickened, two or three minutes.
  3. Add sour cream and mustard, stir to blend. Add beef and juices from dish; stir over medium just till warmed through. Salt to taste.

What a great recipe! A snap to make and the result was elegant enough to make me feel like an accomplished chef. My meat-and-potatoes teenage boys loved this, as did my husband. I'll definitely ...

Our family of four loved this dish. The sauce is tasty, but not overpowering, so the flavors of the meat, mushrooms, and shallots really come through. We all agreed...this one's a keeper!

WOW. Fabulous! I used a high quality steak for the beef and followed the recipe exactly except for taking care to salt and pepper my steak while tenderizing it (before cutting it into bite siz...

my son and I really liked this recipe it was very simple and delisious. Next time I will put less onions in, but that is all I would change
