To make this recipe, I used what I had leftover from a visit to the Farmer’s Market. I have substituted fresh corn for the potatoes, zucchini for the summer squash, and shiitakes for portobellos. You can also serve this with chicken breasts, duck breasts, or leftover beef roasts.
olive oil cooking spray
1 pound (480 g) creamer potatoes, diced
2 summer squash, diced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
2 Portobello mushrooms, diced
2 shallots, minced
1 large tomato, seeded and diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
3 tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons (22.5 ml-30 ml) balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
freshly ground pepper
4 4-ounce (120 g) tenderloin steaks
Coat a grill pan with cooking spray. Heat the pan to hot and add the potatoes. Cook until almost done (Test with the end of a sharp knife). Add the squash, pepper, mushrooms, and shallots. Cook until just done.
Transfer vegetables to a large bowl. Toss in the tomatoes, garlic and herbs along with the vinegar to taste, salt (if using), and pepper. Set aside.
In the same grill pan, grill the steaks until desired doneness. Remove from the stove and let stand for 5 minutes.
To serve, divide the vegetables between 4 plates and top with tenderloins. Serve at room temperature.
