Root vegetable preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop vegetables into large, equal-sized cubes. Place chopped vegetables in large mixing bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, minced garlic salt and pepper. Put onto foiled baking tray and bake @ 350 until tender (about 30-40 minutes.)
Pull cooked veggies out, wrap in foil and set aside. Turn oven up to 450 degrees.
Pan seared filet:
Lightly season the center cuts with olive oil salt and pepper. With a blazing hot sauté pan, sear the first then back sides of both cuts of meat (2 min. per side.)
Flambé and Madera green peppercorn reduction:
Add minced shallot and olive oil to searing pan, cooking shallots until tender (about 2 minutes.) Place both filets back in pan. Flambé with Marsala wine, add 2 oz. beef stock. The mixture will reduce by half. Spoon wine and broth mixture over tenderloins to incorporate flavors. Whisk in green peppercorns and herbs, flour is optional. Reduce the heat and whisk in the whole butter as well as salt and pepper to taste.
Assembly and plating:
Place equal parts root vegetables down on platter first. Nestle filet on top of warm root vegetables. Spoon sauce over the top. Serve immediately & enjoy!
