Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 4 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed (about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 cups port wine
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann's)
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded Fresno chile or jalapeño pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Preparation

  1. 1. Place 4 garlic cloves on a cutting board; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Chop until a paste forms, scraping with the flat side of a knife to mash. Press garlic mixture into both sides of steaks. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. 2. Bring wine to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Stir in rind and paprika. Pour wine mixture into a pie plate or wide, shallow dish.
  3. 3. Line one tier of a 10-inch bamboo steamer with an 8-inch circle of parchment paper; lightly coat paper with cooking spray. Arrange steaks on top of paper in steamer basket. Cover with steamer lid. Add water to a large skillet to a depth of 1 inch; bring to a boil. Place steamer in pan; steam steaks 8 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from steamer; place steaks in wine mixture for 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes. Cut steaks across the grain into 1/2-inch-thick slices; sprinkle with remaining 3/8 teaspoon salt.
  4. 4. Combine mayonnaise, chile, juice, and 1 garlic clove. Spread 2 table­spoons mayonnaise mixture on each of 4 plates. Top evenly with sliced steak and any remaining wine mixture.
