Entertain guests this Memorial Day weekend with my favorite simple and delicious beef filet recipe:
2 6-oz tenderloin filets, cut 1.5 inch thick
1 teaspoon canola oil
½ teaspoon melted butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Marinade: ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup sherry
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Greek seasoning blend
½ teaspoon pepper
- Combine 5 marinade ingredients. Marinade filets in sealed plastic bag 1- 3 hours in the refrigerator.
- In a cast iron skillet, add 1 tsp. canola oil. Heat on high until skillet is hot. Place filets in skillet. Sear each side approximately one minute. Reduce heat to low. Cook approximately 5 minutes each side (“medium” doneness), turning once with tongs, to avoid losing meat juices if fork used.
- Sprinkle lightly with salt to taste and brush each side with 1/8 teaspoon melted butter.
- Side dishes: sautéed mushrooms, steamed spinach, grape tomatoes, and mashed potatoes go great with this recipe and are healthy add-ons!!
