For Red Wine Sauce

  • 1 cup red wine dry
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoon flour
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Brush beef tenderloin with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Put a grill pan on a medium-high heat. When it's hot enough, place meat on a grill and sear it for 2 minutes from all sides.
  • Transfer the grill pan into the oven and let it cook for 15 minutes until internal temperature reaches 140 F. (See the notes)

For Red Wine Sauce

  • Heat olive oil in a small sauce pan and over medium heat. Sauté onions until translucent and slightly browned. Add wine and thyme. Bring to a boil and cook on a high heat until reduced by half.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low, add butter and flour and whisk constantly until thickens, about 3 minutes. 
    Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with a steak!



I took the steak out of the oven at 140 F. At this temperature you'll have a medium rare steak.
If you want medium or well done steak, continue cooking it in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 155 F or 165 F accordingly.
