    chia's Note:

    watching food tv tonight this recipe looked so delicious- i just bought a whole tenderloin today at the Italian market in south Philly, but i had them cut it into fillets for me. I plan to be back there next week, and will have to try this for our holiday party.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Set up a large steamer.
    3. 3
      Place the lobster tails in the steamer and steam until just cooked through, about 6 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove the lobster tails from the steamer.
    5. 5
      Cut along the underside of the shell and remove the tail meat whole.
    6. 6
      Set aside.
    7. 7
      In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat.
    8. 8
      Add the pancetta and cook, stirring, until crisp and the fat is rendered, about 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove with a slotted spoon.
    10. 10
      Drain off all but 2 teaspoons of fat from the pan.
    11. 11
      Add the shallots and celery and cook, stirring, until soft, about 2 minutes.
    12. 12
      Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
    13. 13
      Add the mushrooms and a pinch each of salt and pepper, and cook until the mushrooms give off their liquid, 3 to 4 minutes.
    14. 14
      Add the green onions and stir.
    15. 15
      Add the wine, increase the heat, and cook until it has nearly all evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.

    17. 17
      Remove from the heat, stir in the cooked pancetta, and let cool.
    18. 18
      Spread the butterflied beef, cut side up, flat on a surface.
    19. 19
      Spread the pancetta-vegetable mixture in a line across the meat, about 2 inches from the top, leaving a 1/2-inch border on the sides.
    20. 20
      Lay the lobster tails on top of the mixture, going across the beef.
    21. 21
      Pull the top flap over the lobster tails and roll the meat over the stuffing, jellyroll fashion, and tuck in the ends.
    22. 22
      Tie with kitchen twine every 2 inches.
    23. 23
      Place in a large heavy roasting pan, rub on all sides with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, and season lightly with salt and pepper.
    24. 24
      Place over medium-high heat and sear the meat on all sides, about 6 minutes.
    25. 25
      Place in the oven and roast to desired temperature, 30 to 35 minutes for medium-rare.
    26. 26
      Transfer to a cutting board.
    27. 27
      Tent and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
    28. 28
      while beef is resting make the Bearnaise sauce:.
    29. 29
      In a small saucepan, combine the shallots, tarragon, white wine, and vermouth.
    30. 30
      Bring to a boil and cook until reduced to 2 tablespoons.
    31. 31
      Remove from the heat, strain, and cool.
    32. 32
      In the top of a double boiler, or in a metal bowl fitted over a pot of barely simmering water, whisk the egg yolks and reduced wine until ribbons start to form.
    33. 33
      Whisking constantly, drizzle in the melted butter a bit at a time until all the butter is added and the mixture is thick.
    34. 34
      Remove from the heat.
    35. 35
      Whisk in the lemon juice, chopped tarragon, salt, and pepper.
    36. 36
      Adjust the seasoning, to taste.

      Can I give this 10 Stars??? This is a fair amount of work, but well worth the effort. I did everything as per the recipe, except I had to substitute cremini mushrooms for the chanteralles, as I couldn't find them. The cooking time is right on - 35 minutes and it came out beautifully medium rare. The Bearnaise sauce is the best I've ever had. If you are spending the money on the tenderloin, spend the money on the fresh tarragon - what a difference. Chia - thanks so much. This was incredible and we can't wait to serve it to company (those that are worthy, that is LOL!).
