Number of Servings: 2


    1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
    2 tablespoons gin
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons juniper berries, crushed
    2 4-ounce beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed
    1 teaspoon canola oil
    1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper


1. Combine broth, gin, vinegar and juniper berries in a measuring cup. Set aside.
2. Brush or rub steaks with oil. Press pepper onto the steaks and season with salt. Heat a medium cast-iron or heavy skillet over high heat until nearly smoking. Place steaks in the heated pan and cook until browned on the outside but still pink inside, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate and keep warm.
3. Add the reserved broth mixture to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring to scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until reduced slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Place the steaks on individual plates and spoon the sauce over.

  • My husband is literally allergic to alcohol and while this sounds good, I'd like to substitute something for the gin. Any ideas? Also, where are the cherries? I see juniper berries but no cherries - 6/26/08
