  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cherry preserves

Brown aged tenderloin in 1/2 butter, remove from pan, sauté shallots the rest of the butter until translucent, stir in the rest of ingredients loosening the fond from the pan and allowing the sauce to reduce until thickened.
