  1. Trim the beef and cut into eight ½-inch thick medallions, about 6 ounces each.
  2. Season the medallions with Salt and Pepper and brush with Olive Oil; Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  3. Heat ½ Tablespoon of the Oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sauté the Garlic and Shallots until aromatic, 1-2 minutes; add Tomato Paste and cook until slightly browned, about 2 minutes; add the Mustard, Black Peppercorns, Chicken Broth, Maple Syrup, Vinegar, Salt and Pepper; Simmer until mixture reduces to a sauce consistency, about 10 minutes.
