BEEF DISHES

Greek-Style Filet Mignon with Olive Vinaigrette

2018年8月8日

Every once in a while, I just need a juicy steak.

I had been thinking about going to a local steakhouse for a filet, but I always feel like I can’t count on them to make it healthy.  So many steakhouses finish a steak with a  pat of butter… and even with the best intentions, the veggies are often soaked in oil and butter as well. No No No!

My sister-in-law has shown me that you absolutely can make a restaurant quality steak at home.  It’s important that you have a nice cut of meet and prepare it properly.  This Greek-style steak was JUST what the doctor ordered.  And, I used a little of the olive vinaigrette to top a tomato salad you see in the background.  Craving satisfied, for sure!!!
