Beef tenderloin is ultra-special. True to its name, this cut is luxuriously tender—perfect for impressing your dinner companion (and yourself). Here, it’s seared to develop a deep brown crust and then drizzled with a rich, shallot-flecked pan sauce. Like any great steak-centric meal, this dish doesn’t skimp on the sides. Fluffy chive mashed potatoes are the perfect accompaniment for catching any extra sauce, while creamy, garlicky kale adds a deliciously hearty bite.

1

• Wash and dry all produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. (TIP: For smoother spuds, peel potatoes first.) Place 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 1⁄3 cup potato cooking liquid, then drain and return potatoes to pot. Keep covered off heat until ready to mash.

2

• Meanwhile, remove and discard any large ribs from kale; chop leaves into 1-inch pieces if necessary. Halve, peel, and mince shallot. Thinly slice chives. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add kale and a splash of water. Cook until kale is wilted and very tender, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

3

• While kale cooks, pat beef* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook to desired doneness, 4-7 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; remove from pan and set aside to rest.

4

• Heat another drizzle of oil in pan used for beef over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened and fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Stir in demi-glace and ¼ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4 servings), scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium low. Cook until reduced by half, 2-3 minutes. • Turn off heat; stir in half the garlic herb butter (you’ll use the rest later).

5

• To pot with drained potatoes, add 1 packet sour cream and 1 TBSP plain butter (for 4 servings, use 2 packets sour cream and 2 TBSP plain butter). Mash over medium-low heat until smooth and creamy, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed. • Stir in half the chives; season generously with salt and pepper.

6

• Return pan with kale to medium heat; stir until warmed through. Stir in remaining sour cream and remaining garlic herb butter. Season with salt and pepper. • Divide kale, potatoes, and beef between plates. Drizzle beef with sauce. Garnish with remaining chives and serve.
