Beef Filets with Goat Cheese Sauce
This is one of the easiest sauces to make, and it tastes so good on the grilled steaks. If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, you can certainly substitute blue cheese or feta. And if you don’t want to grill the steaks outside, you can broil them in the oven.
Ingredients (serves 6):
1 1/4 cups half and half
3 slices white bread, crusts trimmed, bread torn into small pieces
1/4 cup crumbled soft fresh goat cheese (2 oz.)
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
6 7-8 ounce beef filets
2 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped
Method: Bring half and half to simmer in a small saucepan. Transfer to processor. Add bread and process until blended. Add goat cheese, garlic, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Process just until blended. With processor running, gradually add oil; process until smooth. Transfer sauce to medium saucepan, and heat to warm, but do not boil. Season with pepper and salt.
Meanwhile, rub each steak with olive oil and generously salt and pepper all sides. Preheat grill to high heat. Grill steaks to medium rare temperature, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat. Place steaks on platter and top with goat cheese sauce. Garnish with chopped chives and serve.
