While grilling beef, you should always choose good quality meat. The 5 oz. Filet Mignon that I received in my Omaha Steaks® package is the perfect size, and the quality of the meat was awesome. While purchasing asparagus, I always look for jumbo or large asparagus as they will grill easier without falling through the grates. Make the Chimichurri sauce in advance so it has time to marinate.

Chimichurri

Make the chimichurri prior to cook the meat and vegetables.

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano
  • ½ cup olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl and allow to marinate for 30 minutes before using.

Filet Mignon

Season the filet with Omaha Steaks’ signature seasoning blend and drizzle with vegetable or olive oil.

Grill on high heat until desired temperature. I prefer medium rare for Filet Mignon since it is a leaner cut of meat.

.   .   .

Asparagus and Peppers

Season the asparagus with lime juice, coriander, salt, pepper and vegetable or olive oil.

Toss the 3 or 4 baby sweet peppers with vegetable or olive oil and salt.

Grill the asparagus and peppers on high heat with the filet mignon. They should both take about the same amount of time. If the vegetables are done before the steak, just move them to a cooler part of the grill while the steak finishes cooking

.   .   .

To Plate

Place the asparagus on the plate first and then top it with the steak. Place the peppers around the plate and spoon the chimichurri over the steak. Enjoy!
