Beef Tenderloin with Garlic-and-Merlot Jam lends a touch of elegance to an appetizer spread at that special celebration.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottom ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle beef with kosher salt and pepper; place in skillet, and cook, turning occasionally, 5 minutes or until well-browned on all sides.

Step 2

Transfer skillet to oven, and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145° (medium-rare) or to desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Step 3

Cut beef into 24 thin slices. Place on baguette slices, and top each with 1 tablespoon Garlic-and-Merlot Jam. Sprinkle with chives.

This appetizer was a big hit at my party, everyone raved about it. I recommend buying peeled whole garlic and using the food processor. Also, under cook the meat a little because it cooks more when it sits for 10 minutes. The onion jam topping is absolutely delicious!
