Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 16 oz baby bella mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 1 small or ½ medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dry thyme if you must)
  • 4 Kroger Private Selection Beef Tenderloin Steaks
  • ½ cup Barefoot Merlot
  • 1½ cups low sodium beef broth
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium/high heat and melt in 2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp oil. Add thickly sliced mushrooms and cook 5 min until soft. Stir in onion and cook another 3 minutes. Press in garlic cloves then season with ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp pepper and 1 Tbsp fresh thyme. Cook another 2 min, stirring constantly until garlic is fragrant, then transfer mushroom mixture to a plate. Wipe the skillet clean with a wet papertowel.
  2. Pat dry steaks with a paper towel and season all over with 1 tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper.
  3. Place the same pan over medium/high heat and add 2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp oil. When butter is hot and finished foaming, add seasoned steaks to skillet and saute, turning over once with tongs about 3-5 min per side for medium-rare (I cooked 5-6 min per side for medium doneness). If steak is browning too fast, reduce heat to medium. Use tongs to transfer steaks to the plate with mushrooms.
  4. Add ½ cup Merlot and boil until reduced by half (3 min), scraping the bottom with a spatula to deglaze the pan. Add 1½ cups broth and boil until about ⅔ cup liquid remains (5-6 min). Add ½ cup cream and boil until sauce thickens slighly (2 min). Return mushrooms and steak to the pan and heat until warmed through (1 – 2 min). Season sauce to taste with more salt & pepper if desired (I added about ¼ tsp more salt).
