2 large garlic bulbs
1 1/4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 (4-oz.) beef tenderloin fillets
1 teaspoon butter


1. Cut off pointed ends of garlic; place on a piece of aluminum foil, and drizzle cut sides with 1/4 tsp. olive oil. Fold foil to seal.

2. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes, and let stand 30 minutes. Squeeze pulp from cloves into a small bowl. Smash garlic, pressing with back of a spoon to make a paste.

3. Sprinkle pepper and salt evenly on beef fillets.

4. Melt butter with remaining 1 tsp. oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add steaks; cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Top steaks evenly with garlic paste.
