Grunge Cookbook's Love Me Tender Filet Mignon with Peppercorn~Orange Sauce

  • This recipe requires very special peppercorn that must be blessed by a local drummer of your choice. But he'd better be sexy, because that's the only way the succulent nectar of the carcass will exude its "love potion." Technically, large amounts or Rainier Beer have the same effect, but this is way less likely to get you in trouble and way less hard on your poor little Irish liver!  (If you're not Irish, why not pretend for the day?)  Enjoy this and enjoy every day as if it was that one good Valentine's Day you had way back in '92! 

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. To prepare sauce, combine the first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 6 minutes). Cool.
  3. Place the onions, cilantro, peppercorns, garlic, and oil in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add orange juice mixture, sesame seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; pulse to combine. Set aside.
  4. To prepare steaks, sprinkle the beef with 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Place steaks on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve steaks with sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
