Filet Mignon with Martini Marinade and Crumbled Blue Cheese

Filet Mignon with Martini Marinade and Crumbled Blue Cheese
from Weber's Recipe of the Week

2 tablespoons gin
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon juice from a jar of green olives
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 filets mignons, each about 8 ounces and 1-1/4 inches thick
4 green olives stuffed with pimentos
4 white cocktail onions
4 toothpicks
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 ounces blue cheese

To make the marinade: In a small bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients.

Place the filets mignons in a large plastic resealable bag. Pour in the marinade. Press out the air, seal the bag, and turn a few times to distribute the marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Skewer 1 olive and 1 onion on each toothpick.

Remove the filets mignons from the marinade, letting the liquid drip away. Discard the marinade. Allow the filets to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Season evenly with the salt and pepper. Grill over Direct High heat until cooked to your desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, turning once. Transfer each filet to a serving plate and poke a toothpick with an olive and an onion into the middle of each steak. Crumble the blue cheese over the top. Serve warm.

Makes 4 servings
