This beautiful, buttery beef tenderloin is so simple. Brown the beef in a cast-iron skillet, roast it in the oven, then take advantage of the hot pan to toss together the thyme- and sherry-glazed mushrooms.


  • 1 2 - pound beef tenderloin, trimmed and tied
  • Kosher salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon canola or corn oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms (or mixed cremini and shiitake), trimmed and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme


  1. Pat beef dry. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Position rack in center of oven, and preheat oven to 425 degrees . Season beef on all sides with 2 teaspoons each kosher salt and pepper.
  2. Heat canola oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and sear on all sides for 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast until internal temperature reaches 135 degrees , 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer beef to a platter; tent loosely with foil while preparing mushrooms.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon butter and the olive oil to same skillet. Add mushrooms and a pinch of kosher salt. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms begin to turn golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Add shallots; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper. Carefully add sherry; cook and stir until almost evaporated, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir juices from tenderloin platter into mushrooms with remaining tablespoon butter and thyme. Slice beef and serve with mushrooms.
