Ingredients

Cooking spray
4 (4-ounce) filet mignon steaks, trimmed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup port or other sweet red wine
3 tablespoons chopped shallots
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Preparation

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle both sides of steaks with salt and pepper. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from pan; cover and keep warm.

2. Add port and shallots to pan. Cook 1 minute or until liquid almost evaporates, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in broth; cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 1 minute). Remove from heat; stir in mustard. Serve steaks with sauce.

Note:

Port, a fortified dessert wine, has a distinctively smooth sweetness. If you don't have port, substitute red wine.
