(4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed
1/2  tsp salt
1/2  tsp freshly ground black pepper, divided
Cooking spray
Tbsp minced shallots
1/3  cup red wine (pinot noir or burgundy wine)

in a measuring cup; fill to 1/3 cup with water)
1/3  cup fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
thyme sprig
1- 1/2 Tbsp chilled butter, cut into small pieces


Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat.  Sprinkle steaks evenly with salt and half the pepper.   Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add steaks to the pan and cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.  Remove steaks from pan and place on warmer.

Add shallots to the pan and sauté 30 seconds.   Add the wine, juice, broth, thyme sprig and remaining pepper; bring to a boil.  Cook 7 minutes or until reduced to about 3 tablespoons. Remove from heat; discard thyme sprig. Add butter to sauce, stirring until butter melts.   Serve sauce with steaks.
