Filets Mignons with Pesto and Grilled Tomatoes

These steaks are also wonderful stuffed with prepared tapenade, a Provencal olive-anchovy-caper condiment, or with caponata, a Sicilian sweet-and-sour eggplant relish. The pesto recipe here makes more than you will need, but the extra can be refrigerated or frozen. If you like, thin the leftover pesto with a little white wine and brush it on chicken just as it comes off the grill. A simple baby lettuce salad alongside the filets is all you need to complete the meal.

These steaks were phenomenal, and the pairing with the grilled tomatoes added the perfect touch of acidity. I served them to my big sisters during my 40th birthday bash, and was immediately jumped for the recipe! The pesto recipe is so easy it's fail-proof, so don't be afraid to try it (unless you're like my husband and can burn water, then I would suggest store-bought pesto). If possible, purchase the thicker fillets as directed, not the cheaper cuts of beef. Your mouth (and your guests) will thank you for opening your wallet. I give this recipe 5 stars; not just for the excellent flavors, but for the easy preparation as well.
