A_boleyn asked me for this recipe and I thought I would post it here in case anyone else is interested. It came from our favorite restaurant in Reno - Le Moulin.

½ T. finely chopped shallots ¼ T finely chopped garlic

1 oz red wine
1 ½ T cream
2 drops Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ T Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté tournedos in butter until desired doneness is almost reached. Do not let butter burn.
