1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, divided
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 3/4 pounds beef tenderloin, trimmed
1/3 cup brandy
1/4 cup minced shallots
1 1/2 cups beef broth
Combine 2 teaspoons thyme, salt, pepper, and allspice in a small bowl. Rub mixture evenly over all sides of beef. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add beef to pan; cook for 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides.
