Roast Beef Tenderloin with Wine Sauce

Roast Beef Tenderloin with Wine Sauce


Ingredients:
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
3/4 cup finely chopped shallots, from 2-3 large shallots
1-1/4 cups red wine
3 cups beef broth
6 fresh thyme sprigs
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
etc


Instructions:
  • Melt 5 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the shallots and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the wine, beef broth, thyme sprigs, salt, pepper and sugar, and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by about half.
  • While the liquid is reducing, place the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl and soften in the microwave, if necessary (it should be soft but not melted). Add the flour and, using a small spoon, mix into a smooth paste.
  • Once the wine mixture is reduced, reduce the heat to low and remove the thyme sprigs. Whisk the flour-butter paste, a teaspoonful at a time, into the simmering liquid, and simmer for a few minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Set aside. (The sauce can be made up to this point and refrigerated up to 3 days ahead of time.)
