Ingredients:

  • 1 center cut beef Tenderloin Roast, chain removed (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 1 large shallot
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 package), thawed

  1. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat until hot. Combine salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast. Place roast in skillet; brown evenly. Remove roast from skillet.
  2. Heat oven to 425°F. Place mushrooms and shallot into food processor; pulse on and off about 10 times until finely chopped. Do not over process. Heat remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil in same skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add mushrooms and shallot; cook 4 to 6 minutes until tender and all liquid is evaporated, stirring often. Add wine; cook 2 to 3 minutes until all liquid is evaporated. Stir in mustard, thyme, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from skillet to medium bowl; cool.
