Dinner for 2: Sherry Glazed Beef Tenderloin Bites with Garlic & Parsley

If you have a craving for a sumptuous piece of beef but are on a budget my Sherry Glazed Beef Tenderloin Bites with Garlic and Parsley recipe is just the ticket.

With just a pound of beef tenderloin, a few aromatics and some quick technique you’ll have an elegant dinner for two; in no time at all. Here’s the recipe.


2 tsp of kosher salt
1 tsp of freshly ground pepper
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. beef tenderloin, 1in cubes
8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1⁄4 C Sherry
1⁄4 C rough chopped Italian parsley


Generously season beef with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a heavy bottom sauté pan, heat oil on high heat until almost smoking. Place beef into pan and sear. (Approximately 45 seconds). Add garlic. Once you can lift pieces of beef up off the bottom of the pan easily, turn each piece over and sear other side. Cook meat until done to your preference.

Take pan off heat and pour in sherry. Shake pan gently.

Place back on heat (medium high) to deglaze pan. Reduce sherry by 1⁄4. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Transfer meat and sauce to a serving platter. Serve immediately.

Yields 2 main servings.
