How to Make Garlic Herb Beef Tenderloin Steak

Step 1

To make the butter: In a small bowl, add the butter, chives, thyme, and garlic. Stir to combine completely. Set aside.

Step 2

Allow steaks to come to room temperature and pat dry with a paper towel. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Step 3

In a large cast iron skillet, add the olive oil to coat the pan. Put over high heat.

Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steaks. Add the steaks to the cast iron and sear each side for 2 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer to the oven for 6 to 8 minutes, cook until desired doneness and depending on the thickness of the tenderloins. Internal temperature should be about 130°F to 140°F for medium rare, which is how I cooked these.

Step 5

While the steaks are in the oven, add 1 tablespoon of the herb butter into a large skillet. Add the asparagus and cook over medium/high heat, until asparagus is al dente. Remove from heat.

Step 6

When the steaks are done cooking, remove from the oven. Add a pad of the herb butter on top of each one and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with asparagus and bread, use the extra herb butter for bread!

FAQ's

Can I use another cut of beef?

Yes, you can use another cut of beef and use this same method. This recipe would also work well with New York Strip or Filet Mignon.

Why do you need to let steak come to room temperature before cooking?

It's important to allow steaks to come to room temperature before cooking because it allows the steak to cook more evenly, which will result in a more tender and juicy steak.

Why do you let steak rest before eating it?

It's best to let steak rest after cooking for the juices to redistribute throughout the meat. If you cut into it too soon, the juices can run out and this can result in a steak.

What else can I serve this with?

I love serving this with asparagus and bread for a simple dinner. But, you could also serve this with salad like my Simple Green Salad, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, or Bone Broth Mashed Potatoes.

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
