Thai-Style Seared Filet
Tenderloin might just be the ultimate canvas for center-of-the-plate creativity. Its luxurious flavor and texture pair perfectly with savory, sweet, tangy and spicy accents. And that means you can take it anywhere from black-tie traditional to new - Thai cool -- like, say, marinating it with chile and lime and pan-roasting it on a bed of lemongrass. Want to turn your ever-reliable tenderloin into an even bigger earner? Thai it. They'll like it.
