Chateaubriand, the classic dish made from center cut filet (tenderloin) requires little dressing up. As is with most high quality cuts, it is best cooked rare to medium.
Season filet with salt and pepper, using a heavy bottom oven proof pan coat surface with oil and place over high heat. When oil is hot but not smoking place fillet in pan and brown all surfaces. Transfer pan to a preheated oven (450F). Roast until an internal temperature of 130 degrees F for rare. Transfer filet to a cutting board and let stand. Place pan over medium-high heat and add peeled chopped shallots, saute for 2-3 minute, add red wine and deglaze pan. When sauce becomes syrupy (about 5 min) turn off heat and add butter. Carve filet into thick slices and drizzle sauce over slices.
