32oz center-cut beef tenderloin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 large shallot, peeled and chopped
½ cup red wine
3 tbsp butter, chilled
Preheat oven to 450°F
In an ovenproof, heavy bottomed frying pan, preferably cast iron, heat the olive oil over high heat until hot but not smoking.
Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until the meat internal temperature reaches 130°F for rare about 10 to 15 minutes, 135°F for medium rare, an additional 5 mins. Remove the pan from the oven.
Transfer the meat to a cutting board and tent in with foil to rest, as you make your sauce.
Pour all but a thin film of fat from the pan. Add shallots and sauté it over medium-low heat until golden, 2 to 3 mins. Add the wine and raise the heat to high, scraping up any brown bits from the pan. When the sauce is syrupy, about 5 mins, turn the heat off and whisk in the butter. Makes a rich flavorful sauce to drizzle on top of each serving.
