Easter Dinner, usually pork tenderloin on the grill. But we've had a lot of pork this year so filet mignon took its place. First a dousing of salt on both sides of meat until brought to room temperature. Then a little more salt and lots of pepper. Pan fry in olive oil and a little butter--8-10 minutes each side. Then remove, add a tiny bit of butter to each steak, let rest for 5 minutes to reabsorb the juices. Perfect.
I had forgotten about the bag of freshly ground grits sitting in my pantry. My friend, Darcey, and I each bought a bag while traveling from Savannah, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina in a little town called Round O. Grits are great sweet or savory. Sweet for breakfast with a little butter, sugar, and cream (always cream). And at night, with butter, cream, and salt and pepper. This recipe fancied them up a bit. I loved them, as did the adults in my family. But the kids scrunched up their noses not quite loving the texture.
