2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 beef tenderloin tails
1 pound premade gnocchi
1 cup swiss chard pesto (or whatever pesto you prefer!)
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper



Rub the steaks with the olive oil and season well with salt and pepper.


Bring a cast iron skillet to a medium-high heat.


Sear the steaks on both sides until your preferred doneness. Mine is medium-rare, so it was about 10 minutes total. Remove from heat, cover and let rest for 5-10 minutes.


In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and cook until they float, 3 minutes. Drain and stir in the pesto until combined.


Serve steaks over a bed of pesto gnocchi and experience true living. * If you can’t find premade gnocchi and are feeling like tackling the real deal (maybe for V-day!?) try this! * If tenderloin tails aren’t your thing, go with any cut of meat you prefer. Or leave it off all together for a simple vegetarian meal! * Thank you and goodnight


Enjoy your meal!
