Beef Tenderloin Recipes

Beef tenderloin recipes do not have to be complicated. Today’s recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients and it will rival any steak on any restaurant menu.

Let’s go over a few tips about steak cuts and beef tenderloin. The USDA top three grades of beef are prime, choice and select. Only about 2-3 percent of the beef sold in the U.S. is prime, which also has the most marbling.

What is marbling? When choosing your steaks, pay close attention to the marbling. Marbling is the little flakes of fat within the muscle. When steaks are cooked at a high temperature, the marbling melts, creating a tender, juicy steak. The more marbling a steak has, the better it will taste.

The beef tenderloin is a non weight-bearing muscle, which receives very little exercise and is why it’s so tender. There is only 4-6 pounds of beef tenderloin per steer, which is another reason it’s so expensive.

Beef Tenderloin with Marsala and Shallot Pan Jus

2 beef tenderloin steaks
Sea salt
Fresh cracked pepper

Sauce:
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1/4 cup Marsala wine
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

To finish:
1 small shallot, minced and set aside
1 tablespoon butter, set aside

Mix sauce ingredients (except for shallot and butter) in a bowl and set aside.

Preheat pan on high. Add 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Add steaks and lower heat to medium. Turn steaks after 3-5 minutes. To sear edges, set steaks on their side. Check doneness of the other side after 3-5 minutes. The steaks will continue to cook once you remove them — a term known as carry-over cooking.

Remove steaks, and using the same pan, add diced shallots to pan. Scrape the meat off the bottom of the pan. Add sauce mix and turn pan back to high. Cook until it has reduced by half. Next, finish the sauce and add 1 tablespoon of butter to the sauce. This will help thicken it a bit more and give the sauce a nice shine.

Serve on top homemade french fries and top steak with your homemade sauce. When I served this steak for our neighbors, they said they could have practically cut it with their finger.

Enjoy!

Healthy ho fan beef noodles recipe (حلال)

Not only is this recipe great because it cuts down on the fat by griddling – not frying – the meat, you also get to regulate how you like your steak done by cooking it first. It’s really important to use a good-quality oyster sauce because this is the base flavour. Also, remember the secret to stir-frying is to have all your ingredients prepared before you start.

Serves 2
Ready in 20 minutes
Ingredients
The noodle dish

* 100g wide rice noodles
* 200g lean sirloin steak, trimmed of all fat
* Olive oil spray
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1 teaspoon olive oil
* 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
* 2cm knob of ginger, peeled and finely shredded
* 3 spring onions, cut in half widthways then lengthways through the middle
* 10 small shiitake mushrooms, 5 large ones cut in half
* 100g tenderstem broccoli, sliced lengthways through the middle
* 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
* 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and sliced
* 1 red chilli, sliced

The sauce

* 3 tablespoons premium oyster sauce
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Method: How to cook healthy ho fan beef noodles

1. Boil the kettle. Place the rice noodles in a large bowl, pour over the boiled water and cover with clingfilm. Leave for five minutes or until tender.

2. Drain and rinse under cold water to prevent them sticking together (they will heat up again when you add them to the stir-fry).

3. Heat a griddle pan until smoking. Spritz the steak with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

4. Place the steak onto the griddle pan and grill for one to two minutes on each side. This will give you a nice medium-rare steak.

5. If you like it more or less cooked, change the cooking time accordingly, but remember that when you add the steak to the stir-fry it will cook a little more.

6. Remove from heat and leave to rest for five minutes. Slice thinly widthways.

7. To make the sauce, mix the ingredients together with a splash of water.

8. Heat a wok. Add the olive oil and throw in the garlic, ginger, spring onion, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli and peppers and stir-fry for two minutes.

9. Pour over the sauce, and add the noodles and steak. Give it a big stir until combined and serve topped with the chilli.

Cuisinart Rotisserie 4 lb Ribeye Roast to Prime Rib

This time I use he Cuisinart Rotisserie to roast a 3.99 a pound 4 1/2 lb bone in ribeye roast. It turns the roast in to some tasty mouth watering prime rib. Just tie the roast, cook to 135 probing often not to over cook. After it hits 135 let it rest for 15 min and serve. For added flavor coat in olive oil and a nice beef rub for four our more hours prior to roasting.
