Beef Tenderloin Filets with Garlic Butter and Herbs~
This was our entree for Nick’s 18th birthday…for about the 17th year in a row, he requested steak. Hubby thought I was nuts when I accompanied him to the grill to make 45º turns for perfect hash marks, and he also was certain he didn’t want any butter and herbs on his beef. I convinced him that had enjoyed this before…it is a simple, yet elegant dish…and I was right. It was extremely well received…even the “green stuff.” I hope you’ll try it for your next celebration~
And if you haven’t tried my Crispy Smashed Potatoes, they are a fabulous accompaniment to any meal~
