  • Summary

    Mushrooms and beef have long been an inspired combination, and here they're joined in a particularly sophisticated way. Dried porcini mushrooms grind to a powder in no time in a blender and add a subtle woodsiness to the beef, while the truffle butter enriches the sauce with its heady aroma. Black-truffle butter is the best deal going. It gives you tremendous flavor at an affordable price, a fraction of the cost of a fresh black truffle.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (6- to 6 1/2-pound) whole beef tenderloin, trimmed of fat, silverskin, and the chain (see Cooks' Notes); or a 5- to 5 1/2-pound well-trimmed tenderloin roast
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1/2 ounce (about 1/2 cup) dried porcini mushrooms, ground to a powder in a blender
    • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) black-truffle butter, softened
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 pound crimini (baby bella) mushrooms, trimmed and quartered into wedges
    • 3 cups beef stock or low-sodium broth, divided
    • 1/2 cup chopped scallion greens
    • Kitchen string; large heavy roasting pan; instant-read thermometer
