From : Cooking Light - Beef tenderloin adds elegance to any dinner party. Using a combination of black, white, pink, and green peppercorns adds piquant new flavors to the basic cracked-pepper crust on this roast, and the sauce, with complex and sweet flavors of port and balsamic vinegar, balances the spice well.

Recipe Ingredients for Mixed Peppercorn Beef Tenderloin with Shallot-Port Reduction

2 pound beef tenderloin, trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons (mixed) peppercorns, cracked
1 Cooking spray
2 cups ruby port or other sweet red wine
1 1/2 cups fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 sprigs fresh parsley
2 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme (1 sprig)
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Mixed Peppercorn Beef Tenderloin with Shallot-Port Reduction

  1. Preheat oven to 450.

  2. To prepare beef, sprinkle beef evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and peppercorns, pressing firmly to adhere. Place beef in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450 for 33 minutes or until a thermometer registers 135 or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

  3. To prepare reduction, combine port and next 5 ingredients (through thyme) in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1 1/4 cups (about 15 minutes). Strain port mixture through a sieve over a bowl; discard solids. Combine flour and 3 tablespoons water. Return port mixture to pan; add flour mixture to pan, stirring with a whisk. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thickened, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vinegar.
