A pair of these mouthwatering tender little medallions topped with tangy olives makes a luxurious entrée.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle fillets with peppercorns and salt.

Step 2

Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in each of 2 large skillets (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Sear fillets in hot oil over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side. Arrange beef medallions in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Step 3

Bake at 400° for 6 to 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with Olive-Herb Relish.

Step 4

*Ask your butcher to cut 3-oz. petit beef fillets (medallions) from the slender end of several tenderloins. This will ensure that you end up with 16 medallions not over 3 oz. each.
