To make Estouffade: Preheat the oven to 450F. Rinse all of the bones and dry them thoroughly. Arrange the bones in a roasting pan and roast in the oven 30 to 40 mins. until a rich brown colour is achieved. Transfer bones to a stockpot and add ham knuckle. Add water and bring the mixture slowly to a boil. Simmer, skimming the surface as necessary. After about 41/2 hours brown the mirepoix and tomato paste in the same roasting pan. When vegetables are soft and very slightly caramelized add to the stockpot. Deglaze the roasting pan with water and add to the stock. Add the sachet d'epices. Simmer an additional hour (approx. six hours in all). Strain. Season tenderloin with salt and allspice. Saute' the beef in butter to desired oneness. Remove from pan and keep warm. Lower heat and add 2 Tbs. butter and 2 tbs. of the flour. Add more flour if needed. Fry lightly over moderately low heat until the roux slowly turns a golden straw colour. Gradually add the Estouffade, whisking constantly to avoid lumping. When well blended add mustard and a little pepper. Simmer over medium heat about ten mins. Add sour cream to pan, stirring constantly until desired consistency is reached ( to cover back of a spoon). Reheat meat in the sauce taking care that the sauce does not boil. Serve.
