Scampi-Style Steak & Scallops

Scampi-Style Steak & Scallops

10 ounces beef tenderloin steaks 2 (5 ounce) steaks, 1 1/2-inch thick
1 teaspoon Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons butter
4 ounces sea scallops 6 large scallops, rinse and pat dry
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup finely chopped green onions (about 4 scallions), white and light green part
3 large garlic cloves minced
¼ cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  1. Season steaks with salt and pepper. In a 10 to 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat until hot and bubbly (more can be added, if needed). Add steaks to skillet and brown on one side for 4 to 5 minutes. (At this point, begin the sauce in another small, non-reactive skillet or wide sauce pan as described in step 2.)
  2. Turn the steaks on end and rotate to brown the sides (this will take about 3 minutes), then turn over to brown the final side for 4 to 5 minutes. When turning the steak to brown the last side, add scallops to the skillet to brown at the same time, about 2 minutes on each side.
  3. To make the sauce in the separate skillet, sauté onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat 3-4 minutes, until fragrant. Add wine and lemon juice; simmer to reduce slightly, 1-2 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons butter and stir until melted into the sauce. If the steak and scallops are not yet done, slide the sauce off heat until they are ready.
