Beef Tenderloin Steaks with French Onion Sauce

IMG_3918

Not the prettiest picture but oh, so good!

If you’re thinking of cooking steaks any time soon and want something just a little different, try my beef tenderloin steaks with French Onion Sauce. The sauce smells like French onion soup while it’s cook. Top a toasted piece of French bread with your cooked steak and the sauce and you will be delighted with the surprise.

I did these steaks recently when friends came over. My steaks were on the small size (6 oz.) but by the time we added it to the bread and sauce it was almost more than we could finish. If you aren’t a big meat eater, try 4 oz. steaks for the ladies and maybe 6 oz. for the guys.

We don’t normally eat a lot of beef. Seems like we eat more fish, chicken and pork than beef. But, I found this new little grocery, Harvest Natural Market, in our area and they run beef tenderloin and rib eyes all the time for $5.99-$6.99 a pound. So I couldn’t resist the urge to over buy which I have done and probably have 30-40 steaks now residing in our deep freeze. I may be using some of them for stir-fries this summer and may try a chicken fried beef tenderloin steak one day; saw that on a menu in Austin a couple of years ago.

BLAST FROM THE PAST: This BLT Tomato Stack is a recipe I recreated after eating it in Savannah last summer. When I make it again, I won’t make the candied bacon but will just use thick bacon and fry it and add to the stack.
