Beef Filet with Chive Butter
Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Chill 30 mins Grill 4 mins per side

Ingredients

Chive butter
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) salted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch red-pepper flakes
Filet and marinade
  • 4 beef filet mignon, about 1-1/2 pounds total
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Make It

1. In a small bowl, combine butter, chives, pepper, garlic powder and red-pepper flakes until evenly blended. Transfer to plastic wrap and shape into a 3-inch-long log. Wrap to seal; refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.

2. Prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals, or heat gas grill to medium-high. In a shallow dish, season meat with Worcestershire sauce, then sprinkle both sides with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

3. Grill filets for 4 minutes per side, or until internal temperature registers 135 degrees F in the thickest part of the meat for medium.

4. Once meat is cooked, remove filets from grill. Let rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, remove chive butter from the fridge and cut into thin slices. Top each filet with 1 to 2 butter slices and serve warm.
