Beef Tenderloin with Stilton Pecan Butter for Dishes in 5 Ingredients or Less #SundaySupper

When I saw this #SundaySupper I had no idea what to make. I knew it wasn’t going to be Tuna Noodle Casserole, not that there is anything wrong with that, it just wasn’t where I wanted to go with this. Instead of decreasing ingredients to make it work for this #SundaySupper I wanted to up the game!! Flipping through Fine Cooking magazine gave me exactly what I wanted to do. Taking a simple steak and making it out of this world!! I tweaked it slightly and I give you this divine steak that will make it seem like you fussed all day but actually you can pull this together in no time!! And you don’t have to stand outside and freeze you tuckus off in those winter months barbecuing. Salt and pepper are free and the parsley is an optional ingredient. Accompany with simple boiled potatoes and asparagus if you like. Enjoy!!!

    I love the idea of the Stilton and pecan topping! And we have some pecans in the freezer at the moment. And it’s been ages since we’ve had steak. Hmmm . . . 😉 Really nice recipe with great flavors. Thanks so much.

    My husband LOVES stilton and pecans. I have been trying really hard to develop a taste for stilton but haven’t succeeded yet. But I am always willing to try and making this would make my husband so happy so I might have to plan a special meal for him. :)

    Tara, this is a winner!!! I made a blue cheese sauce last weekend for our steaks, but this Stilton butter sounds even better! Happy #SundaySupper!

    OOH! I love the butter! I buy my tenderloin whole and I know this sounds awful – but we get bored with it. This is a great recipe to bring some new flavors to the wonderful piece of meat.
