Scotch Fillet Steak

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by diner524

A recipe I found on for New Zealand recipes. Here is what is stated: "By the name Scotch Fillet, one might assume that it is a particular cut of meat that originated in Scotland or is from Scottish-bred cattle. Instead, Scotch fillet is a term commonly used in Australia and New Zealand for a fillet cut from the rib tenderloin portion of beef, and sometimes pork. Other names for Scotch fillet are rib fillet or rib-eye fillet."

Delicious rendition of steak! I'm pretty sure I purchased the wrong type of steak, as when I read the description I saw rib-eye, so that is what I bought and used. However, I think it should have been a filet minon in hind sight. This only goes to prove that this recipe works perfectly flavor wise. The onion mixture really enhanced the flavor of the steak. My DH just raved about how delicious it was. Made for Photo tag.
