One of my youngest daughter’s best friends, Melina, would rarely eat when she was little. I always felt like I’d done well if she had a bite or two of cheese pizza. Then one day she was over playing and Maddie asked if Melina could stay for dinner. I was making filets. She ate the entire thing and requested it again from her mom the next night. We finally found a food she liked and it was one of the most expensive cuts of meat. Kids…go figure?
I like to make compound butters to go on the filet. My favorite is to toast some pine nuts in a pan, mince some garlic and dice up some chives. Toss all of that along with some gorgonzola into softened butter and mix well. Form into a little log and pop in the freezer until firm. Just undercook your filets, place a slice of the butter on top and pop under the broiler for a minute or two to partially melt it.
Gotta go…I’m hungry.
