 Categories: Beef
      Yield: 4 Servings
      2 c  Dry red wine
      1 c  Beef broth
      1 c  Chicken broth
    1/4 c  Shallots; finely chopped
    3/4 ts Dried thyme

      2 oz Cream cheese; at room
      1 ts Minced garlic
    1/4 ts Dried thyme
    1/4 ts Dried tarragon

    1/4 ts Dried basil
     32 oz Beef tenderloin; in 4 steaks
      2 tb Olive oil
    1/4 c  Butter; cut into pieces

  basil in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. (Sauce and cheese
  mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Cover separately and chill.)

  spatula, carefully turn steaks over, scraping up cheese crust with
  steak. Cook until bottom is brown, about 1 minute.

  minutes for rare. Transfer steaks to plates. Tent with foil to keep
  Bring sauce to simmer. Remove from heat. Gradually add butter,
  whisking just until melted. Season sauce to taste with salt and
  pepper. Spoon sauce over steaks and serve.
