Filet Mignon with Smoky Glazed Asparagus

Wednesday, 27 May 2009


Asparagus again?  Yes!  Why not.  This was the most labor intensive asparagus recipe I’ve made to date, but it wasn’t too bad, with 10-15 minutes of prep, 30 minutes of marinating and 6-7 minutes on the grill.  The recipe is Smoky Glazed Asparagus from Food and Wine and they rated this recipe as “best with steak” of the various side features in this month’s issue.


The recipe calls for using thick asparagus and peeling them, which was a first for me.  I cut off the very ends of the stalks after I peeled the bottom half with a potato peeler.  That seemed to work fine.  The entire length of the asparagus was edible after the marinating and grilling. I used low-fat mayo in the marinade, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.


The asparagus were ready after around 3-4 minutes per side with just one turn in between on a high-heat grill.


For the filets, I seasoned them with olive oil, soy sauce and Lawry’s season salt, and left them on the grill approximately the same amount of time as the asparagus (3-4 minutes per side) for rare to medium rare doneness, depending on the size of the steak.  I served the steak and asparagus with rice made with vegetable stock for a little extra flavor.

  16. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
