Sometimes referred to as “mock tender,” teres major is a cut whose similarity to tenderloin makes it a great stand-in for filet mignon.
Servings: 4
Total Time: 35 minutes
8 slices of bacon
2 beef teres majors (about 1 pound each), cut into 8 medallions
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
16 fresh morels, rinsed, or dried morels—soaked in boiling water for 30 minutes, drained and rinsed
4 large scallions, cut into ½-inch lengths
1/2 cup Madeira
3/4 cup mushroom stock or lowsodium broth
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
Wrap a slice of bacon around each beef medallion and secure with toothpicks. Season with salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the medallions and cook over moderately high heat until browned on the bottom, 2 minutes; turn and cook for 1 minute more. Add the morels and scallions and cook over moderate heat until the scallions are tender. Transfer the meat to a plate. Cook the vegetables for 2 minutes more, add the Madeira and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the meat and stock and simmer over moderately low heat, turning, until an instantread thermometer inserted in the center of the meat registers 140°, about 3 minutes. Transfer the meat to plates; discard the toothpicks. Remove the skillet from the heat and swirl in the butter. Season with salt and pepper, spoon over the meat and serve. —Jeremy Stanton
