6 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

2 tablespoons minced onion

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley leaves

1 pound beef tenderloin, cut into 8 slices


Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onions, garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and salt, and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are tender. Stir in the parsley; pour the sauce into a small metal bowl or saucepan, cover, and keep warm. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet. Cook the steaks over medium-high heat, turning them once, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium. Serve the steaks with the mushroom sauce.
