Tom Jensen


2 T. olive oil
3 T. balsamic vinegar
1 beef tenderloin roast (about 1 to 2 lbs)
1 T. white peppercorns
1 T. black peppercorns
3 T. mustard seeds
Dijon-cream sauce

Dijon Cream Sauce
1 can (14 oz)) beef broth
1c. whipping cream
2 T. Butter, softened
1 to 2 T. Dijon mustard
1 to 1 T. balsamic vinegar
Coarsely crushed black peppercorns and mustard seeds for garnish

Bring beef broth and whipping cream to a boil in a saucepan. Boil gently until reduced to about 1 cup; sauce will be thick enough to coat a spoon. Remove from heat; stir in butter, a little at a time, until all the butter is melted. Stir in mustard and vinegar, adjusting amounts to taste. Sprinkle with peppercorns and mustard seeds. Makes about 1 cup.

Combine oil and vinegar in a cup; rub onto beef. Season generously with salt. Let stand 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, coarsely crush peppercorns and mustard seeds in a blender or food processor or by hand with a mortar pestle. Roll beef in crushed mixture, pressing it into the surface to coat.

Oil hot grid to help prevent sticking. Grill beef, on a covered grill, over medium heat, 16 to 24 minutes (depending on size and thickness) until a meat thermometer inserted in the center almost registers 150F for medium-rare (cook until 160F for medium or 170F well-done; add another 5 minutes for every 10F). turn halfway through cooking. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Slice and serve with a few spoonfuls of sauce.
