Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s Filet Bryan

May 3, 2014

OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH you guys. 

I have been craving Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s Filet Bryan ever since I moved to California. 

The closest one to me is like 12 hours away, and I didn’t think it would be very responsible of me to leave my beautiful baby girl and my hunka burnin’ love for a piece of meat. 

Now matter how delicious and perfect that piece of meat may be. 

So I figured I better learn how to make it at home. 

I still can’t believe I did it. I may or may not have cried while eating this.

It is the peak of my culinary career. 

I should go out with a bang and just call it quits right here. 

I am not going to be pretend to be a grilling connoisseur right now, because I am anything but…. like … I don’t even own a grill. So… there’s that.

So, honestly, I can’t even really give you grilling instructions, because I don’t know how to cook the perfect steak on the grill… but I actually did cook the perfect steak using my cast iron skillet and my oven. 

Seriously, when I cut open my steak and it was perfectly cooked I screamed my face off.

Serves 4
This is our favorite way to eat steak. Smothered in goat cheese and drizzled with a warm lemon butter sauce, it is succulent and SOOO good!

For the Steaks
  1. 4 of your favorite cuts of steak (I chose tenderloin steak for this)
  2. Grill Seasoning (see recipe)
  3. Grill Baste (see recipe)
  4. 4 ounces goat cheese, cut into 8 rounds
For the Sauce
  1. 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces, divided
  2. 2 tablespoons yellow onion, finely chopped
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1/3 cup dry white wine
  5. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper
  7. 4 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Sprinkle Grill Seasoning liberally over your four steaks, seasoning all sides, and brush Grill Baste on all sides.
  3. At this point, you can throw them on your grill if you are amazing and know how to do that kind of thing. Or you can do what I did and follow this tutorial.
  4. Remove your steak from the grill or oven and top with goat cheese. Then make an aluminum foil tent and let the little guy camp for a minute while you prepare your sauce.
For the Sauce
  1. In a medium skillet, make sauce by melting 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until onion is translucent but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add wine and lemon juice and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to it's lowest setting** IMPORTANT ** and whisk in remaining 11 tablespoons butter, one piece at a time, letting each piece soften before adding the next (You DO NOT want your butter melting. You want it softening into a sauce. It will take you a few minutes to add all the butter to the sauce, but keep whisking! You can do it!).
  3. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes and basil.
  4. Arrange steak on plates and divide sauce evenly over them. Garnish with additional basil and serve immediately.

    I’m not a big goat cheese fan. It sometimes has a musky smell which I relate to growing up next to a goat farm..haha. Any suggestions for other cheese options?

    I used to not be a fan until I had this recipe. Now I love it! While no other cheese can really offer the same flavor that goat geese contributes to this recipe, ricotta or softened cream cheese will yield similar textures. You can try those!
