Steak Crostini with Chive-Cream Sauce



Steak Crostini with Chive-Cream Sauce
Tender beef pairs nicely with the creamy sauce and crisp baguette.
Ingredients:
1   loaf (16 oz/450 g) French baguette
1/2   cup (125 mL) sour cream
2   tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh chives
1   garlic clove, pressed
3/4   tsp (4 mL) salt, divided
1   tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
2   beef tenderloin filets (4-5 oz/125-175 g each), cut 1 in. (2.5 cm) thick
1   tbsp (15 mL) coarsely ground Peppercorn Medley
   Roasted Cherry Tomatoes (see Cook's Tip)
   Additional chopped fresh chives (optional)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Cut baguette on a bias into twenty-four 1/2-inch-thick (1-cm) slices. Arrange bread on Large Sheet Pan; spray with olive oil. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine sour cream, chives, pressed garlic and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt; mix well.
  2. For filets, add oil to (10-in./24-cm) Skillet; heat over medium-high heat 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Season filets with Peppercorn Medley and remaining salt. Reduce heat to medium; cook 6-10 minutes or until Digital Pocket Thermometer registers 140°F (60°C) for medium-rare doneness, turning once. Transfer filets to plate; tent with foil and let stand 5 minutes (temperature will rise to 145°F/63°C). Thinly slice filets. Spoon sauce over baguette slices; top with filet slices, tomatoes and additional chives, if desired.

Bake 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven; cool.
