Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Season the fillet with olive oil, salt and
cracked black pepper. Make six small slits in the tenderloin. Stuff each
slit with a clove of garlic. In a large saute pan, over high heat, sear the
fillet for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and place in the
oven. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from the oven and
rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. In a saute pan, over medium heat,
melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the onions. Season with salt and
pepper. Cook the onions until caramelized, about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Remove from the heat and set aside. Using a box grater, grate
the potatoes. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper. In a medium
nonstick pan, over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add half
of the grated potatoes and press firmly into the pan, covering the entire
area of the pan. Cook the potatoes until golden brown, about 3 to 4
minutes. Using a long metal spatula, flip over the potato cake and continue
to cook until golden and crispy. Remove the potato cake and place on a
parchment or waxed paper-lined baking sheet. In the same pan, melt the
remaining butter. Repeat the process with the remaining potatoes. Spoon the
caramelized onions over one of the potato cakes. Spread the cheese over the
onions. Top the cheese with the crispy bacon and chives. Place the other
potato cake on top of the bacon and place in the oven. Cook for about 4
minutes or until the potato is crispy and the cheese starts to melt. Remove
from the oven and cut the potato cake into fourths. Carve the fillet into
individual slices. To serve, place a wedge of the potato cake in the center
of each plate. Arrange the beef slices on top of each potato wedge. Spoon
the Classic Bordelaise Sauce around the potatoes. Drizzle each plate with
the Maytag Blue Sabayon Sauce and garnish with parsley. This recipe yields
4 servings.
