Filet with Crab Topping
Ingredients
  • 2  bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin steaks, cut 1-1/2-inches thick*
  • 1/2  cup  long grain rice
  • 3  tablespoons  snipped fresh parsley
  • 1  tablespoon  butter
  • 1/3  cup  half-and-half or light cream
  • 1/2  ounce  cream cheese
  • 2  tablespoons  thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/2  teaspoon  seasoned pepper or herb-pepper seasoning
  • 2  ounces  drained, flaked canned crabmeat (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1  teaspoon  lemon juice
Directions

1. Season steaks with salt and ground black pepper. Place steaks on unheated rack of broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 18 to 21 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees F) or 22 to 27 minutes for medium (160 degrees F). Turn once halfway through cooking. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan cook rice according to package directions. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the parsley and the 1 tablespoon butter. Cover; let stand for 5 minutes. In small saucepan combine half-and-half, cream cheese, onion, seasoning, and remaining parsley. Cook and stir over medium heat until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in crabmeat and lemon juice; heat through. Place steaks on two dinner plates. Pack rice in two 6-ounce custard cups; invert onto plates. Spoon crab topping over meat. Makes 2 servings.
