3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic
4 fillet steaks, each about 5 oz., at room temperature
1 lb. of French beans
1/2 cup of sliced almonds
1 tbsp white truffle oil
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Step 1: To make the herbed butter, mash all the ingredients together and roll into some plastic wrap in the shape of a tube. Pop into the refrigerator to chill.
Step 2: Toast the almonds until golden in a skillet over medium heat and set aside.
Step 3: Preheat a heavy bottom pan over high heat. Lightly oil the pan. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides and sear for 3 minutes on each side. Bake in a 400°F oven for a few minutes if they're extra-thick and you would like them cooked more. Let them rest for 5 minutes, wrapped in foil.
Step 4: Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Cook the beans for 3 minutes until they turn bright green. They should be just cooked but not squeaky. Drain and drizzle the truffle oil and olive oil over them while they are still warm, and toss to coat. Add the almonds and sprinkle the sea salt over top.
Step 5: Plate the beans and meat and top with a slice of the herbed butter on top. Consider serving with Fennel & Potato Gratin.
