Sesame-Crusted Beef Tenderloin Steaks with Pineapple, Mango, and Red Pepper Relish

Found this in Cooking Light and it was really good.


  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped pineapple
  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped peeled mango
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  tablespoon  fresh orange juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  grated orange rind
  • 1/2  teaspoon  crushed red pepper

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks (about 1 inch thick)
  • 4  teaspoons  black sesame seeds


To prepare relish, combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl; set aside.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over steaks. Coat both sides of each steak with 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with relish.
