        Trim fat from beef, wrap in foil, and place in freezer for 30
        minutes to facilitate slicing. While meat is in freezer, make
        sauce by combining lemon juice, wine, shallots, capers, mustard,
        and parsley.  Gradually whisk in olive oil by pouring in as a
        small stream. Add salt and mushrooms and toss.  Refrigerate for
        at least 20 minutes.  Remove meat from freezer and with a very
        sharp thin knife slice on a diagonal into paper thin slices.
        Place beef slices on platter or individual plates. Top with sauce
        with additional sauce served on the side.  Sprinkle parmesan
        cheese over the filet slices.
        Serves 2 as an entree, and 6 as an appetizer.
