  1. In a small bowl, soak dried mushrooms in hot water.
  2. Heat butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook until the onion is tender and transparent. Stir in beef bouillon cube, and pour in mushrooms with water. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in cream; simmer gently for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Place whole potatoes in a pan with water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat, and cook about 5 minutes. Drain water. When potatoes are cool enough to touch, cut them in half. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and fry potatoes until golden. Season with salt and thyme. Set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. Season beef medallions with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Place medallions in hot oil, and brown on both sides. Remove from heat, and place medallions in the center of a roasting dish.
  6. Cover medallions with porcini sauce. Arrange potatoes around medallions. Cover dish with aluminum foil. Roast for 15 minutes.

I made this dish for Christmas Eve last year. The flavor was spectacular, but I will include some type of thickening agent next time as the sauce is on the thin side.

It took a bite of work but it was one of the best beef dishes we have ever made.

After reading several expert reviews, I used 3/4 oz. dried porcini mushrooms in 2/3 cup water, thickened sauce with roux, omitted cube, vidalia onion, and a splash of cabernet. Had 1 1/2 " medal...

I substitued fresh chanterelle mushrooms and the flavor was incredible. Also, I used Elk tenderloin, which, in my opinion, is far superior to beef.

Very good. I found 15 minutes was not quite long enough in the oven and my meat was stil quite raw. I went 20 minutes but unless you like your beef still bleeding, I'd go as long as 30minutes ...

I thought this meal was REALLY good, simple, easy to follow, and worthy of beef tenderloin. LOVE the 'shrooms! Thanks for sharing such a delicious and simple recipe!

This beef recipe is delicious. My DH and I both loved it. I had 1 pound of beef tenderloin that I cut up into medallions myself. This is a cheaper way to go. I also only had 1/2 oz of dried porc...
