Caprese Beef Tenderloin
This simple steak dish is based on the famous Caprese salad, an Italian favorite made of fresh tomatoes, basil, cheese, and extra-virgin olive oil. With such a short ingredient list, the key is in the quality. Caprese’s flavors are a perfect match for beef and a simple way to give a lean cut, like tenderloin, some pretty big flavor.
Because this dish cooks so quickly, have all of your ingredients prepared before you begin cooking.
Season steaks with salt and pepper; brush bread with oil.
Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high until shimmering. Add steaks and bread; cook 3 minutes. Turn steaks and bread. Cook steaks 2 minutes more and bread until toasted on both sides. Transfer bread to serving plates; place steaks on top of bread and allow steaks to rest, 5 minutes.
Serve steaks and bread with tomato sauce. Top steaks with mozzarella and basil.
