Method

Mark beef by grilling in a cross pattern, cook beef to a medium rare doneness. Hold in a warm place on side.

Saute bell peppers and onions in olive oil until onions clear (about 5-7 minutes, Do Not overcook peppers), add remaining sauce ingredients and simmer until the sauce thickens. ( about 5-7 minutes)

Plate Presentation

Skewer olive first, fold anchovy then skewer and present on top of tenderloin. Pour sauce into 2" hotel pan, arrange beef for presentation.

Chef's Notes:

This is an easy dish to prepare for a party. Cook the sauce and skewer the olives and anchovies in advance, then refrigerate. Remove the beef from refrigeration about an hour before service. (This will allow the meat to come to room temperature before cooking.) When ready to serve, warm the sauce and pour into the hotel pan. Grill the steaks, arrange in pan, add garnish and serve. Great!!
