Impress your significant other with this classic French Châteaubriand recipe for two that features beef tenderloin, potatoes, and Béarnaise sauce. This will be your new go-to favorite for date night.
Châteaubriand is a recipe and method that was named after French statesman and author François Châteaubriand. This dish features roasted, and sliced center-cut beef tenderloin that is served with buttered potatoes, and béarnaise sauce.
This was a dish we used to serve up at a restaurant I worked at back in St. Louis that was specifically for two people, which means it was more expensive. We served it with fresh asparagus in addition to the classic ingredients and it was always a hit. Do not ignore these classic recipes, they’re beyond delicious.
