Serves 4 (serving size: 1 steak and about 3 tablespoons gremolata)

Peppercorn-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Gremolata is big on flavor. Fresh herbs and lemon make a bright, tasty topper for the steaks.

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat each steak with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat. Add steaks to pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, parsley, and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Serve with steak.

Made for Christmas Eve dinner along with the Herbed Red Potatoes.  We grilled the steaks on our Traeger.  DH didn't want the gremolata on his steak so I had it.  Not really for me as I felt it detracted from the taste of the tenderloin instead of complimenting it.  Probably won't make again but it was very pretty and very easy to prepare.

Easy & very good

Made to recipe using the sirloin option.  Used mini-chop to finish the gremolata into fine mince (not like the photo).  Served with the recommended herb-roasted potatoes & CL's nutty brussels sprouts salad. Very good dinner.

Was so surprised at how good this was! I had to google what gremolata is, but found out it adds a ton of flavor to the steak. It is somewhat similar to chimichuri sauce, just not as liquid. Next time I might add a tad more crushed red pepper and less lemon.
