  1. 1

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Peel and cut potatoes into 1" dice. Halve garlic.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes, 3 garlic halves, 8 cups water, and 2 tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1/4 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add sour cream and half the butter and mash until smooth. Add potato cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes simmer, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince tarragon.

    Trim woody ends off asparagus.

    Mince remaining garlic.

    Pat filets dry, and season both sides with garlic peppercorn rub and 1/4 tsp. salt, coating completely.

  3. 3

    Make the Butter

    Combine remaining butter, garlic (to taste), and tarragon in a mixing bowl.

    Form butter mixture into two equally-sized disks. Refrigerate until plating.

  4. 4

    Cook the Filets

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add filets to hot pan. Cook until browned and filets reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Don't worry if a charred crust forms on filets.

    Remove from burner. Remove filets to a plate and rest at least 5 minutes.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    While filets rest, cook asparagus.

  5. 5

    Cook the Asparagus

    Return pan used to cook filets to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add asparagus, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly charred and tender, but still crisp, 7-9 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing butter disks on filets. Bon appétit!
