By Rory Schepisi From Moveable Feast Season 4, Ep.11
Scott Phillips

Servings: 8

This recipe is super simple, but it’s packed with flavor from the pickled jalapeños and steak seasoning


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2-1/2 oz. sliced pickled jalapeños (about 1/4 cup), plus 2-1/2 Tbs. pickling juice
  • 1 Tbs. purchased or homemade steak seasoning, such as Montreal steak seasoning
  • 8 1-1/2-inch-thick beef tenderloin steaks , preferably Certified Angus Beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 to 15 small basil leaves, fresh or fried, for garnish (optional)

  • In a large shallow bowl, combine the soy sauce, jalapeños, pickling juice, and seasoning. Add the steaks, turn to coat, and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare a medium-high (400°F to 475°F) gas or charcoal grill fire.
  • Grill the steaks with the grill closed, flipping once, until medium rare (130°F to 135°F), about 8 minutes total. Remove from grill, season lightly with salt and pepper, tent lightly with foil, and let rest about 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with the basil leaves, if using.

    I made this for my wife's birthday dinner. Wow! This was very flavorful ... lots of flavor for not a lot of work. I used Balducci's Quebec Steak Seasoning. I'm not sure if this is different from Montreal steak seasoning, but I'm not sure it would have made much difference ... most of the flavor is from the jalapenos and the soy sauce. I used Certified Angus Beef prime fillet, which was very tender and took up the flavors of the marinade well. I highly recommend this recipe.

    Loved it, and didn't even make the marinade correctly (not enough soy sauce). Couldn't find Montreal seasonings so just bought generic Chicago style steak seasoning and it worked fine, seemed to have a similar herb/spice profile.
