Tender, grilled beef tenderloins served alongside oven-roasted asparagus and creamy, scalloped potatoes.
Recipe from Chef Ian Carruthers – Bermudaful Catering
For the beef:
4 – 6 oz Beef Tenderloin Steaks
Salt & Pepper
Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper, and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Place on a hot grill (400°F, or higher) and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board. Tent with foil and let stand a few minutes.
For the potatoes:
3 lbs Waxy Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 pint Cooking cream
1 Tbsp Garlic, finely chopped
6 oz Gruyère Cheese, grated
Place the cream and chopped garlic in a large saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the potatoes, cover and simmer for a few minutes – keep stirring so the potatoes do not stick to the sides of the saucepan. Season well with salt and pepper. Transfer to a buttered oven-proof dish and press the potatoes down, sprinkle on the Gruyère cheese. Bake 45 minutes at 375°F until golden brown. Check potatoes with knife if unsure the potatoes are cooked through.
For the roasted asparagus:
1 lb Asparagus Spears (thick spears are best for roasting)
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Freshly Grated Black Pepper
In a small bowl mix the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper together. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer on a baking sheet, or foil covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil mixture over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are covered in a thin layer of olive oil. Season with freshly grated black pepper and salt. Bake in the oven at 400°F for about 8 minutes.
