Place in roasting pan. Add 1/2 cup of each wine and broth to the pan.
Bake uncovered at 400, repeat additions of 1/2 C wine/broth every 20 mins until internal temp reaches 145 for Medium rare. I used 170 and was happy.
Cover pan with foil and allow to stand for 10 mins before slicing in 1/4″ servings.

Serve with pan juices.
Enjoy!
