Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin

This is anything but your usual steak recipe. The complex Pierre Poivre N.7 spice blend used to crust the beef and flavor the mushroom sauce is proof that peppercorns can be floral, sweet, tangy, and yes, peppery, all at once. It is also proof that all you need are a few great ingredients and the right seasoning to make a great dish. Once you've used this pepper blend, there's no going back to the grinder.
