Georgia’s Favorite Beef Filet: Simple-and-Delicious

Did you know? May is Beef Month!  And, May 28th is Hamburger Day! Choose 90% lean ground beef, and add twice the amount of tomatoes, lettuce and onions for the healthiest version!

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 


  1. Combine 5 marinade ingredients. Marinade filets in sealed plastic bag 1- 3 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. 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.
  3. Sprinkle lightly with salt to taste and brush each side with 1/8 teaspoon melted butter.
  4. Side dishes:  sautéed mushrooms, steamed spinach, grape tomatoes, and mashed potatoes go great with this recipe and are healthy add-ons!!
