Many of you have voted here on STEAKNIGHT Magazine for your favorite steak. Hands down the majority goes to the Filet. You have spoken and we are listening. Here is an unbelievable filet recipe for you.
- 4 Filet Mignon Steaks (each 1 1/4 inches thick)
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 3 Tablespoons Canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo (finely minced)
- 2 Limes Freshly Squeezed
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
- 1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro Leaves
- Kosher Salt
- Mango Salsa Recipe
For Chipotle Marinade, place the olive oil, Goya chipotle chiles, lime juice, honey, garlic, cilantro, and salt in a blender; puree until smooth.
Pour marinade into a resealable ziplock plastic bag, add steaks and move around until all sides are coated. Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Meanwhile, prepare the Mango Salsa.
Remove steaks from refrigeration 1 hour before cooking and wipe excess marinade off the steaks.
When you are ready to grill, preheat barbecue grill. Place steaks onto hot grill. Season the steaks liberally with salt and grill to the desired temperature, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium rare.
When the steaks are done to your liking, remove from the grill and let rest 10 minutes before serving (resting assures that the meat will not dry out.) Serve steaks with prepared Mango Salsa.
