Herbed Tenderloin Steaks with Goat Cheese Topping

Ingredients

  • 4 beef Tenderloin Steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Sautéed Arugula and Tomatoes (recipe follows, optional)
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Combine goat cheese and basil in small bowl; set aside.

  2. Press thyme and garlic evenly onto beef Tenderloin Steaks.

  3. Preheat nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook steaks 10 to 13 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove steaks from skillet; immediately top with goat cheese mixture. Keep warm.

    Cook's Tip: To grill, place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 10 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill 11 to 15 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. 
  4. Prepare Sautéed Arugula and Tomatoes, if desired. Season steaks with salt; serve with arugula mixture.

    Sautéed Arugula and Tomatoes: Heat 1 teaspoon oil in nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add 5 cups arugula leaves and 1 clove minced garlic; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until wilted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup diced tomatoes.
