By Deen Brothers


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 10 min

Servings: 4



  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 8-ounce beef tenderloin steaks about 11/2 inches thick
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Combine the butter, lemon zest, and tarragon in a medium bowl until creamy. Finely crush the berries and sugar with a fork in a small bowl. Add the berry mixture to the butter mixture, stirring to blend well. Mound the butter mixture into small bowl; set aside.

Spray a grill rack with nonstick spray and preheat the grill to medium-high. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the grill rack and grill, about 5 minutes per side for rare or until desired doneness. Transfer the steaks to a platter. Let rest 5 minutes. Serve with the butter mixture.
