Filet Bites

This is another simple but yummy recipe from Morganthony’s Christmas Party 2K9. Morg really went above and beyond last year, probably because Tony’s obsession with Christmas requires we start celebrating early in November. That girl’s gonna make someone an excellent wife some day. April 16 to be exact.

Several filets (or another good cut of meat), cut into 1.5-inch cubes
1/4-1/2 stick of butter
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Brown the butter in a skillet. (If you’ve never made browned butter before, you basically melt it over medium-low heat and whisk until it turns a hazlenut color. If you burn it start over. Burned butter is the only kind of butter that sucks.)
  2. Cook salt-and-peppered steak in butter for a few minutes on each side stirring frequently (until medium-rare).
  3. Serve with toothpicks on the jolliest Christmas tray you can find. I serve these with a mayo-horseradish dipping sauce (2:1 ratio of mayo to horseradish), but these are great naked or with A-1. Sorry, but my inner redneck loves that stuff.
