Peppered Fillets with Mushroom Sauce

Yield 2 servings (serving size: 1 steak and 1/2 cup sauce)
To get maximum pepper flavor, use freshly ground. It's more pungent and flavorful than the ground pepper in cans or jars.

Ingredients

  • 2 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks (1 inch thick)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or low-salt beef broth
