How to Make Beef or Bison Tenderloin:

Rub the chopped garlic into the beef or bison tenderloin, then season with Savory Salt and Pepper blends. (If you’d rather, you can simply use Crushed Garlic Olive Oil to sauté the tenderloin in the next step).

Place tenderloin in a sauté pan with a 1 to 2 Tbsp of olive oil – EVOO or flavored oil. I personally love EVOO, but rosemary or garlic flavored olive oil also make for succulent and delicious beef or bison. Sauté the tenderloins over medium-high heat. Cook each side for 5 minutes to achieve a rare to medium rare temperature. If you like your tenderloin or steak more well done, cook each side for a bit longer on medium or medium-low heat.

Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the greens and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, or simply drizzle with Crushed Lemon Flavored Olive Oil.

Top the greens with sliced bison or beef tenderloin, and chopped red onions, if desired. Finish with freshly ground Savory Salt and Pepper & Juniper Blends, to taste, and a drizzle of your choice of olive oil.

Serve with Garlic Mashed Potatoes (below) or – if you want a lower-carb side – Cauliflower “Rice.”

For added green goodness, serve as well with Lemon & Rosemary Power Greens.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

These yummy mashed potatoes are a cinch to make, yet taste like you spent a good amount of time in the kitchen. The secret? Use Crushed Garlic Olive Oil instead of butter!

In a medium-to-large saucepan, heat 2-3 quarts of water to a boil and add about 1/2 tsp of salt.

While the water is heating, prepare the potatoes. I personally like to leave the skins on – not only does doing so save you time and energy, but you get more nutrients in the mix. Just make sure to scrub the potatoes well prior to slicing them. If you prefer, you can peel the potatoes for a more picture-perfect mash.  Slice the potatoes into 1” cubes, and set aside.

When the water reaches boiling, carefully add the potatoes and cook them until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the water.

Drizzle the potatoes with Vervana Crushed Garlic Flavored Olive Oil and mash them with a fork or masher. If you like, add a dash of half-and-half or milk for added creaminess. Season with Savory Salt and Pepper Juniper Blends, to taste.
