Filet Mignon With Rosemary-Port Sauce

Recipe from: Selma
Servings: 4

2 cloves garlic, halved
4 beef tenderloin steaks, approximately 4 ounce size and about 1 inch thick, trimmed
½ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
½ cup port or other sweet red wine
½ cup low-salt beef broth
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
cooking spray
2 teaspoons light butter

Rub cut sides of garlic over each side of steaks; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let stand 15 minutes.

Combine port, broth, and rosemary in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes or until mixture measures ⅓ cup. Stir ¼ teaspoon salt into sauce. Pour into a small bowl; set aside. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel.

Coat pan with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Set beef aside.

Add reserved port mixture to hot pan. Simmer 30 seconds, scraping pan to loosen browned bits, until mixture reduces to cup. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Spoon sauce over steaks.
