Black and Blue Beef Tenderloins

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Recipe

For the Sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1 large shallot, minced fine
2 large gloves garlic, minced fine
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup Sensuous Slathering Sauce
1 teaspoon salt

For the Finish
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
4 (8 oz.) beef tenderloin steaks
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons crumbly bleu cheese
2 tablespoons sliced scallions

Heat the butter until melted in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic, cook until soft. Add remaining ingredients, stir and keep warm on the back burner.

Heat a large skillet (cast iron is the best choice) over high heat until smoking hot. Press salt and pepper into the steaks, coating both sides. Add olive oil to hot pan, swirl to coat surface, then add Steaks. Blacken steaks for 4 minutes on each side until medium rare, or longer depending on your preference. Remove steaks from heat and keep warm on serving platter.

Replace saucepan to front burner and quickly add bleu cheese. Stir quickly, then pour over steaks before cheese melts completely. Garnish with scallions.

There are a variety of bottled Dinosaur Bar-B-Cue sauces available in supermarkets and online at Walmart, Amazon and the restaurant website .
