Steak Florentine

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes

This satisfying beef dish hails from Florence. Traditionally, a thick-cut T-bone is the meat of choice, but we've substituted filet mignon to significantly cut the fat. A paste of fresh garlic, rosemary, and olive oil infuses the steaks with flavor.
