Ingredients

  • 1 beef tenderloin, around 3 lbs.
  • 3 garlic cloves, mashed
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cups mushrooms, cleaned and cut
  • ½ cup bourbon
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Place the beef tenderloin in a bowl and cover with garlic, two tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Bring a large pan to high heat and place the beef tenderloin in it. Let it sear on every side (about 3 minutes on each side), and remove. (If you like the meat well done, you can lower the heat after searing it and continue cooking until desired doneness).
  • Using the same pan over medium heat, add one tablespoon of olive oil and then add the mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and let them cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the Bourbon and let it cook for 5 more minutes. Add the beef stock.
  • Mix the cornstarch with a bit of water until it dissolves. Add this to the mushroom sauce and cook for a couple more minutes, or until it thickens. Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper if needed.
  • Serve the beef tenderloin covered with the Bourbon and mushroom sauce.
