- 2 beef tenderloins (2½ lbs each), Chateaubriand cut, trimmed of fat and sinew
- 5 medium garlic cloves, slivered
- 2 ½ T extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ tbsp unsalted butter

- 1 ½ T unsalted butter or margarine
- 4 medium shallots, minced
- 2 C beef broth
- 2 T Cognac
- 2 T Dijon mustard
- 3 T minced fresh parsley

1. With a small sharp knife, make several ¾ inch-deep slits in the meat. Insert garlic slivers into the slits. Brush the meat with 2 tbsp of the olive oil. Set aside.

3. In a large skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Brown the meat quickly on all sides. Remove the meat to a rack in a roasting pan. Set the skillet aside.
4. Roast the meat to the desired doneness, about 20 minutes for medium-rare.
