Mixed Peppercorn Beef Tenderloin with Shallot-Port Reduction

A balance of deep flavor and sweetness that makes this dish perfect to go with your mashed potatoes or boiled rice!

Ingredients BEEF: 1 (2-pound) beef tenderloin, trimmed 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 tablespoons cracked mixed peppercorns Cooking spray

REDUCTION: 2 cups ruby port or other sweet red wine 1 1/2 cups fat-free, less-sodium beef broth 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 sprigs fresh parsley 1 sprig fresh thyme 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Steps 1Preheat oven to 450°. 2To prepare beef, sprinkle beef evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and peppercorns, pressing firmly to adhere. Place beef in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 33 minutes or until a thermometer registers 135° or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.  3To prepare reduction, combine port and next 5 ingredients (through thyme) in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil.
