Beef Tenderloins with Mushroom Sauce

Tonight we had Tenderloin Steaks with Wine-Mushroom Sauce.  I would give it a 3 but John gave it a 4.  It was good but compared to some others I've made I couldn't give it a higher rating.  Try for yourself and let me know what you think. 

It starts with mushrooms...(I've kind of noticed that a lot of dishes I make have shrooms...hope you like them!)
The steaks were about 4 ounces each.  I slightly pounded them - they ended up being just under 3/4".  Season with S&P too.


 I think it is important to  get the steak brown on both sides - so only try to turn once.  And when the steak is done, remove to a dish and keep warm.
 
After the mushrooms are sauted until soft - add the wine and simmer until liquid is almost gone.
 Also put the steak back in towards the end to heat through (I also added in the juices from the steak dish)

Dinner is served tonight with peas and rice:
