Season filets with ¼ t salt and press the peppercorns into one side of each filet. Heat oil in a skillet and add filets. Cook 6-7 minutes per side then remove from pan and keep warm. Remove pan from heat and add bourbon – be very careful –the alcohol will ignite and burn off in this step… return to heat and burn off alcohol then simmer until sauce is reduced by half then add the half and half. Heat ½ t oil and sauté tomatoes and garlic for a few minutes and then add spinach and sauté for 2 minutes. Season with juice, salt and pepper. Plate steak with sauce over top and the spinach on the side.

Combine salt and garlic and rub evenly over the meat pressing some so it will stick well. Heat a large skillet to medium high and coat with Pam. Add meat and lower heat to medium and cook 4 minutes each side or until done. (alternately, you can cook them on a heated grill). Remove steaks to a plate and keep warm. Add wine and broth to pan and cook about 3 minutes, until reduced to about ¼ cup of liquid. Drizzle sauce over steaks.

Cuban Beef

The sauce on this actually makes the beef taste and feel ‘light’. We had our doubts about serving citrus with beef, but the tangy and citrusy flavor combines well with the beef and this is definitely a recipe I will do again ! Serve with a great big salad for a great meal.
