Serves 2 | Prep Time 3 | Cook Time 11


2 6oz beef tenderloin medallions
Salt & pepper
Olive oil for coating
1 TB Browned Butter; melted
1/2 tsp Rosemary sprigs; chopped
1 1/2 TB Blue Cheese; Crumbled – I used a creamy French blue (Blu de Moncenisio) this time, typical I use Gorgonzola
1 TB Panko
1/2 tsp Chives; chopped

Preheat oven to 375

Preheat a sauté pan over medium heat. (with a touch more brown butter if you wish)

Season beef with salt and pepper and rub with a small amount of olive oil.

In a bowl, combine the rosemary, blue cheese, bread crumbs, chives, butter, salt and pepper, set aside.

Place beef in sauté pan and sear on both sides, only 45 seconds - 1 minute per side.

Remove from pan and place on a small rimmed baking sheet.

Divide blue cheese mixture between the medallions, pressing lightly to assure adherence.

Move to oven and bake until desired temperature is reached (8 minutes for rare; about 10 for medium rare; 12 for medium... and so on)

Personally I like it medium rare, as I think that is when it is the most tender.

This is delicious paired with a light Muscat, try to avoid the syrupy thick dessert Muscats. Yes, I know... White wine with beef!!! Blasphemy!!!! But it REALLY is Good.
