Tenderloin Tail Steak Gorgonzola

I hate those recipe blogs that take 4 pages and 30 photos to give a recipe. I promise this isn't that! When we butcher for small boxes, 1/4 or 1/8 orders, I always have these tenderloin tails leftover. Something I never know quite what to do with so I created this recipe for just this cut of meat with lots of veggies for the kids. It's inspired by Come Back Inn in Jeffersonville, IN where we lived for 6 years.

Feeds 6-8


Ingredients:

1 TBS Bacon Grease or Olive Oil

2 Tenderloin Tails (approx 2 pounds)

--- Could also be made with NY Strip or Sirloin

8-16 Oz of Baby Bella Mushrooms Sliced

2 Large Shallots

3 Cups of Spinach

1 Cup Shelled Pistachios

2 Cups Crumbled Gorgonzola

1/2 Cups Heavy Cream

2 Cups Chicken Stock - unsalted

1 Cup Sundried Tomatoes

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

Basil

Salt

Pepper


Steps:

(I did everything below in one large skillet with a bowl next to me for placement of cooked items to limit dishes.)

  • Slice off any silver skin or tendon from the steaks and slice thinly. This is easier when they are not quite unfrozen. Season lightly with salt.

  • Melt bacon fat on medium high and quick sear steak on all sides - set aside.

  • Turn temp down to medium or medium low and use remaining fat/oil to saute shallots and mushrooms until slightly golden. Add spinach just until it wilts. Then set aside with beef.

  • Turn temp down to low and put gorgonzola, cream, broth together in pan and heat just until cheese starts to melt. Add sundried tomatoes, garlic powder (approx 1 TBS), onion powder (approx 1/2 TBS), basil (approx 1 TBS) and salt/pepper to taste. Stir together until combined then add beef/veggies mix to pan and leave on low stirring frequently until pasta is ready.

  • Cook pasta to directions. I used fresh gluten free pasta that only took 3 minutes.

  • Mix everything together and add pistachios.


Lots of variety here - switch sundried tomatoes for fresh, switch pistachios to pine nuts or cut completely, onions for shallots, more or less mushrooms.


Kid approved --- they ate it all!!!


Hope you guys enjoy! And send photos if you try it!
