Food Rx: Autoimmunity | Dinner: Days 1-7 | Serves 2
Prep time: 10 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes
1 8-ounce filet mignon
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups trimmed and sliced green beans (1-inch pieces)
1 cup trimmed and quartered radishes
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 lemon, cut in half
- Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to a heavy-bottomed skillet or cast-iron frying pan set over high heat. Add the filet and cook until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F for rare, 135 degrees F for medium, 145 degrees F for medium-well, and 155 degrees F for well done. Remove from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes.
- Using the same pan set over medium-high heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, then the beans, radishes, shallot, garlic, and juice of half a lemon. Cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Serve the vegetable garnish alongside the steak and squeeze the remaining lemon half over it, if desired.
