Ingredients

  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Sprinkle steaks with 1 tablespoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook steaks in 1 tablespoon butter for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt remaining butter. Stir in the flour and remaining salt and pepper until smooth; gradually add cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in horseradish and mustard. Serve with steaks.
