Peppercorn Filet Mignon Spring Salad

  • Grass fed filets
  • Peppercorns
  • Organic spring mix salad
  • Artisan blue cheese

If you do not have a mortar and pestle you will not get the consistency of peppercorns you need for this recipe - most grinders will just not get you the desired texture. It's a good investment trust me. Outside of that this recipe doesn't get any simpler:

  • Grind whole peppercorns with mortar and pestle.
  • Rub steaks with olive oil.
  • Rub/heavily coat steaks with ground peppercorns.
  • Grill steak to your liking and by the way, your liking is medium rare (roughly 4-6 minutes per side on a hot grill).
  • Arrange organic spring mix in bowl and add anything else you like in a salad.
  • Good crumbled blue cheese is a must.
  • Apply dressing of your choice (Oil and Vinegar does nicely) to salad before the steak.
  • Slice the steak and add to salad.
  • Leave a comment thanking me for the ease of this wonderfully simple meal.

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
