Number of Servings: 6


    3/4lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
    5 Tbsp. butter, divided
    2 tsp. all-purpose whole grain flour
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. black pepper
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
    6 beef tenderloin steaks, 1-1/2 inches thick, 4 ounces each


In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in 3 T. butter for 6-8 minutes or until tender. Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper until blended. Gradually add the cream. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parsley; set aside and keep warm.

In another skillet, heat the remaining butter over medium-high heat. Cook steaks for 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. MR-145 degreesF, M-160 degreesF, WD 170 degreesF.

Makes 6 servings, 1 steak and equal portion of gravy and mushrooms each.

    I eat Primally so this recipe was perfect. Low carb and DELICIOUS. I paired it with roasted summer squash and asparagus instead of the mashed potatoes. - 7/15/10
