Smokey Filet with Serrano-Papaya Salsa and Serrano-Mint-Cilantro Chutney

Ingredients

Chutney:

Directions

Rub the beef filet with allspice, cumin, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, combine the papaya, serrano, avocado, lime juice, and cilantro. Season the salsa with salt, and pepper. Set aside. 

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in an oven-proof saute pan over medium-high heat. Sear the filet on both sides, about 1 minute on each side. Place the pan in the oven and cook about 15 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 140 to 145 degrees F for medium. Remove the beef from the oven and allow the meat to rest 5 minutes before slicing. 

To serve, toss the pepitas with papaya salsa. Spoon a mound on your plate. Place a few strips on the steak and top, and drizzle with chutney and finish with a sprinkle of fresh herbs.

Chutney:

In a blender or food processor, puree the cilantro, fresh mint, serrano peppers, and yogurt together, streaming in some extra-virgin olive oil just until the mixture is thickened. Season the mixture with salt, and pepper. Chill the chutney in the refrigerator until ready to use.
