Balsamic & Fig Beef Tenderloin
with Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Rosemary Panko Brussels Sprouts
Gettin’ figgy with it! Fig jam, that is. Here, the sweet stuff is paired with balsamic vinegar to create a rich and tangy pan sauce for drizzling over beef tenderloin. Garlicky mashed potatoes are the perfect accompaniment for catching any extra sauce (and trust us, you won’t want to waste a drop.) Tender, caramelized Brussels sprouts join the mix, topped with crunchy, golden breadcrumbs. This dish is bursting with flavors and textures that’ll make your mouth dance.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Peel and mince or grate garlic. Trim and halve Brussels sprouts lengthwise. Strip rosemary leaves from stems; mince leaves until you have 1 tsp (2 tsp for 4 servings). Halve, peel, and mince shallot until you have 2 TBSP (3 TBSP for 4).
• Place potatoes in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup potato cooking liquid, then drain. • Melt 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in empty pot over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add drained potatoes and sour cream; mash until smooth, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed. Season with salt and pepper.
• While potatoes cook, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add panko; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. • Turn off heat; transfer panko to a medium bowl. Wipe out pan.
• Toss Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack until browned and crispy, 15-20 minutes. • Carefully transfer to bowl with toasted panko; toss to combine. Season with half the minced rosemary, salt, and pepper.
• While Brussels sprouts roast, pat beef* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan used for panko over medium-high heat.
