Stuffed Beef Tenderloin Filet
- Makes: 2 to 4 servings
- Prep 25 mins
- Broil 20 mins
thinly sliced green onions
thinly sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms*
dried thyme, crushed
smoked cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)
1 1/4 -
beef tenderloin steaks (about 1 pound total)
Salt and ground black pepper
- Preheat broiler. For stuffing, melt butter in skillet. Add onions, mushrooms and thyme. Cook, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes, or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese; set aside.
- Cut a 3-inch-wide pocket in the side of each tenderloin filet, cutting to but not through the other side. Spoon stuffing into each pocket. Sprinkle meat lightly with salt and pepper. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each filet; secure with wood toothpicks.
- Place on unheated rack of broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 to 24 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of meat and stuffing registers 145 degrees F for medium-rare or 160 degrees F for medium, turning the beef tenderloins halfway through cooking time. Makes 2 to 4 servings.
- * Remove and discard stems before slicing shiitake mushrooms.
