Ingredients:

  • 4 beef Tenderloin Steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 package (5 ounces) mixed baby salad greens
  • 1 medium red or green ripe pear, cored, cut into 16 wedges
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (optional)

Honey Mustard Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup prepared honey mustard
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Cooking:

1. Season beef Tenderloin Steaks with 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 7 to 10 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

Cook's Tip: To grill, place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill steaks, covered, 7 to 10 minutes (timings remain the same for gas grill) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Do not overcook.

2. Meanwhile whisk Honey Mustard Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Set aside. Divide greens evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with pear wedges and dried cranberries.

3. Carve steaks into thin slices; season with salt, as desired. Divide steak slices evenly over salads. Top each salad evenly with dressing, pecans and goat cheese, if desired.
