A note about serious food allergies

Mesquite… the word itself brings up visions of cook-outs, dusty sunsets over hot plains, and a dinner bell ringing melodically in the distance. Do those images translate to flavors? They do in this filet mignon stunner, a western delight mixed with cheddar mashed potatoes and healthy green beans. But the star, of course, is the smoky, salty, make-your-tastebuds-dance-the-conga flavoring on these steaks. It's the type of flavor magic that transports while satiating, bringing you into a new (old) world.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and cut potatoes into 1" dice.

    Trim ends off green beans.

    Pat filets mignon dry, and season both sides with mesquite seasoning.

  2. 2

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with diced potatoes covered by water to a boil. Cook until tender, 18-20 minutes.

    Drain potatoes in a colander. Return to pot and add cheese, 1/4 the cream (reserve remaining for adjusting consistency and sauce), 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Mash until smooth, adding remaining cream 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Do not to use more than half the cream total, as half is needed for sauce.

    While potatoes cook, roast green beans.

  3. 3

    Start the Green Beans and Steaks

    Place green beans on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven 8-10 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Green beans will finish cooking in a later step.

    While green beans roast, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to hot pan and sear until browned, 2 minutes per side.

    Remove pan from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Green Beans and Steaks

    Transfer steaks to baking sheet with green beans, moving beans to one side to make room.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Roast until beans are tender and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

    Rest steaks at least 3 minutes.

    While steaks rest, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Pour remaining cream and accumulated juices from resting steaks into pan used to sear steaks.

    Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly until smooth and a line can be drawn in sauce, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing steaks with sauce. Bon appétit!
