Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons dry bread crumbs
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced chives
  • Dash pepper
  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Madeira wine
  • 1/8 teaspoon browning sauce, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the blue cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, chives and pepper. Press onto one side of each steak.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook steaks over medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in broth and wine. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in browning sauce if desired. Serve with steaks.
