Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Cook 12 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon anchovy paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 beef tenderloin or eye round steaks (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
  • 1 package (18 ounces) romaine hearts, cleaned and leaves separated

Make It

1. In blender or mini chopper, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, Parmesan, garlic, anchovy paste and 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Cover blender and run until mixture is smooth and garlic is pureed. With blender running, add olive oil in a thin stream. Set aside.

2. Season beef with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat cast iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.

3. Toss romaine leaves with dressing in large bowl (do in batches, if necessary). Grill or pan-roast beef for 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on thickness, until meat registers 135 degrees F on instant-read thermometer for medium-rare. Grill another minute per side for medium. Remove to cutting board and cover with foil.

4. Divide lettuce among plates. Slice steak and place alongside salad.
