Porcini-Dusted Tenderloin with Porcini-Wine Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 beef Tenderloin Roast Center-Cut (2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 can (14 to 14-1/2 ounces) ready-to-serve beef broth
  • 1 cup dried porcini mushrooms, divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups finely diced fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • 1. Bring broth to a boil in medium saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup mushrooms; let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until mushrooms are softened.

  • 2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 425°F. Place remaining 1/4 cup mushrooms in food processor container. Cover; process until finely ground. Combine ground mushrooms, cheese and pepper; press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.

  • 3. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 425°F oven 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare; 45 to 50 minutes for medium doneness.

  • 4. Meanwhile, add tomatoes and wine to mushroom mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 30 to 45 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 2-1/2 cups and turned a rich, brown color, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

  • 5. Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare; 145°F for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°-15°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)

  • 6. Carve roast into slices. Season with salt, as desired. Serve with Porcini-Wine Sauce.
