Bill Cooper

Serves 4

  • 1⁄4 c. white wine vinegar

  • 1⁄4 c. vermouth

  • 1 Tbsp. minced shallots

  • 1⁄2 tsp. tarragon

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 Tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

  • 3 egg yolks

  • 4 oz. butter, melted

  • 3 Tbsp. tomato paste

  • 1 1⁄2 lbs. beef tenderloin

  • 2 Tbsp. butter

For the Bernaise: combine vinegar, vermouth, shallots, tarragon, salt and pepper in small sauce

pan. Reduce over medium heat to about 2 Tbsp. liquid. Set aside. Whirl egg yolks at high speed in

a blender about 1 minute. With machine running, pour in reduction; add tomatoes. Still running,

slowly pour in melted butter. Incorporate tomato paste last for smooth mixture. Season to taste.

For the Beef: slice tenderloin into 8 pieces, about 1” thick. Season to taste. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in

sauté pan until foaming. Add beef medallions and brown both sides over high heat. Plate two medal-

lions for each serving, spooning Bernaise over and garnishing with sun-dried tomato as desired.
