    Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Merlot Shallot Sauce
    < The tenderloin is the least-used muscle of the cow--and is meltingly tender (though expensive). The center cut used here, also called chateaubriand, is the most tender part of the tenderloin.

    Cooking spray
    1/3 cup finely chopped fresh sage
    1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1 (2 1/2-pound) center-cut beef tenderloin

    1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
    1 1/2 cups Merlot or other dry red wine
    1 1/2 cups low-salt beef broth
    1 teaspoon butter
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
