  • Tarragon Hollandaise:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 sticks butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • Dash of kosher salt
  • Cayenne pepper, as needed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • Steak:
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Four 2-inch-thick beef filet steaks (about 10 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Roasted Asparagus:
  • 1 bunch medium-sized asparagus, ends trimmed if woody
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Shrimp:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces jumbo (16- to 20-count) shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

For the tarragon hollandaise: Add the egg yolks to a blender or a food processor and blend. Add the lemon juice and blend for several seconds. With the blender on, slowly drizzle in the melted butter. Turn off the blender, add in a little salt and cayenne and whip it again until combined. Add the chopped tarragon and pulse. Set aside.

For the steak: Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steaks.

Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and olive oil. When the butter melts, add the steaks to the skillet and sear on both sides until a really nice color, about 1 minute per side.

Place the skillet in the oven to finish cooking the steaks. Cook until medium rare, 4 to 5 minutes. Cover loosely in foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

For the roasted asparagus: Put the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle over the olive oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Roast for 5 to 10 minutes.

For the shrimp: Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute until pink and dark golden brown. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Set aside.

Place each filet steak on a plate and place three to four asparagus spears on top. Pile on some sauteed shrimp and drizzle on some hollandaise Sprinkle on the parsley and serve.

Contains Raw Eggs: The Food Network Kitchen suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella, by pasteurization or another approved method.

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if Ree said that she had died, gone to heaven, sampled the food and then came back to life and started to share those celestial recipes. This is a full on home run! I made it for my father in law and I dare say I am now his favorite daughter in law! DIVINE! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Received lots of compliments on the professional presentation of this dish. Also rave reviews on the taste of the dish once dinner was over. First time making a hollandaise sauce; I used only 1 lemon. It came out great!. Thank you Ree for a fancy dinner at home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Came out delicious! I only used one egg yolk and half a lemon for the sauce, and it was enough for 2. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Incredibly delicious! I wish I could post a picture of how mine came out! I think the hollandaise only needs one lemon though. But boy oh boy was it amazingly delicious! Thank you for sharing this one!! <3 item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for my husband last night and it was devine! So simple yet elegant in presentation and full of yummy flavors. Thank you Ree! x item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely to die for. And so easy. I kicked the shrimp up a notch - let them sit in some olive oil, salt and lemon pepper, and put in some garlic and red pepper flakes with the butter before cooking...yumm. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe sounds wonderful. Am going to try it, but have a question for you. I have not made a hollandaise before. What would happen if one cooked it a little, maybe adding some cream if it thickens up? Just a thought. Might be awful cooked. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't make the hollandaise (I'm a bit skittish about using raw yolk), so I bought the not-as-good jarred sauce. Next time I'll attempt the recipe! This was a wonderful dinner! Even my hard-to-please daughter gave it 2 thumbs up and ate it faster than usual! Can't wait to try some of your other real-kitchen recipes! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the most tasty and elegant steak dish I have ever made! Simple but impressive! Will definitely make it again. Thank you Ree for such amazing recipes...thumb dance to you. Love your show. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ree was right about quick, easy and elegant. I used rib eye steaks because that's what I had on hand. Didn't have my cast iron fry pan with us so I improvised. A cast iron 5 quart vessel worked well so I didn't need to finish off in the oven. Fried the shrimp in the same vessel along with all the leftover bits from the steaks. My cowboy loved them. Didn't have Tarragon on hand which did not need. Next time I will use filets. This one is a definite keeper. P.S. Don't over cook your shrimp. A common mistake made by many. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night for supper! OMG.... Mouth watering greatness!! I did everything exact except I used bearnaise sauce instead!!

Not a meat eater, so I made it on Salmon. It was delicious.. kept everything else as in the recipe. just used fish instead. Well done.. yummi sauce item not reviewed by moderator and published
Exquisite! Did not use asparagus because I do not like it but all the rest was unbelievably delicious and very easy. The hollandaise (actually modified béarnaise) is silky, flavorful, and so simple! Used the leftover sauce to make Eggs Benedict on Sunday morning. You can't go wrong with this one! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Used filet mignon and did not add the shrimp (otherwise followed directions exactly). Made this for 6 adults, 2 teens and 4 kids -- everyone absolutely loved it!!

Absolutely Fantastic! Did the whole show except dessert! My husband kept asking what he had done to deserve this meal. I did only use 5 oz steaks and more shrimp and used pre made hollandaise. Next time I make this for friends I'm make my own. This is a Winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The steak melted in my mouth. It was one of the most simple, elegant dinners I've ever made. I still can't believe how easy it all was to make rather quickly. Wouldn't change one thing in the recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Colleen - I thought it was great because we got four recipes in one. I only made it in half as there are only two of us and we only eat between 6 and 8 oz of red meat at our mature age. But was terrific... item not reviewed by moderator and published
The addition of the hot butter slightly cooks the egg yolks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excited to try this, not a big meat eater either but would love to try the recipe with salmon. How did you cook the Salmon (please include specifics...seasoning, how you cook it and how long). Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Curious, Sue....you gave the recipe ONE star without trying it, because you couldn't pin a photo on Pinterest? item not reviewed by moderator and published
No one is gonna care about her stupid 1 star rating cause she didn't know how to pin it. I am making this and I bet it is gonna be awesome. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
ratings are suppose to be if the recipe worked and was delicious or not, not about you being able to work the computer, stop giving people false ideas about the food ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree that because Sue does not know how to use her computer that she should NOT penalize the chef and a terrific 5 star recipe!! You review the recipe--not the picture! item not reviewed by moderator and published
