  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced shallot (1 medium)
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbs. ground fennel seed
  • 2 2-½-lb. beef butt tenderloins, trimmed
  • ½ tsp. caraway seeds, coarsely ground
  • + 12 more ingredients
    • Kosher salt
    • 1 tsp. cracked black peppercorns
    • 1 Tbs. olive oil or canola oil
    • 1 Tbs. all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups lower-salt beef broth
    • 3 large sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1 750-ml bottle dry, hearty red wine,such as Shiraz or Zinfandel
    • Kosher salt
    • 4 oz. cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced (1-¾ cup)
    • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh thyme

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, thyme, fennel, caraway, 1 Tbs. salt, and 1-1/2 tsp. pepper. Pat the tenderloins dry with paper towels and coat them with the spice mixture, using your hands to spread it evenly; it will sparsely cover the meat.
