  5. 1 cup beef stock

  13. ¼ cup cornstarch

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle filets with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook filets, in batches if necessary, for 3 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer filets to prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145° or to desired degree of doneness.

Add mushrooms, wine, garlic, and thyme. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together ½ cup water and cornstarch. Gradually whisk cornstarch mixture into mushroom mixture until combined. Cook, whisking constantly, for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Whisk in butter, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and remaining ½ teaspoon pepper until melted. Serve mushroom sauce over filets.
