Grilled Filet with Pine Nut Crusted Goat Cheese and Caramelized Beets

Sometimes Zach and I just crave a good steak, and we’re always trying to put new spins on our favorite classics. Some of the recipes we have provided tonight can be used in many different forms. For example, they don’t have to be served with steak at all. They would compliment a grilled salmon filet nicely, and the goat cheese recipe would make a lovely appetizer dish if served alone with a chutney or jam. In this post, we have for you a Pine Nut Crusted Orange Goat Cheese and a fun take on those sometimes scary beets!

To me, goat cheese and beets just scream summertime, and this dish is summertime on a plate. The addition of a grilled steak and a light summer salad tossed in an Orange Ginger Vinaigrette would ALMOST complete this dish if we didn’t pair it with Lefthand’s Milk Stout (Lancaster Milk Stout would also work perfectly). This beer just pushes it over the edge and creates some truly amazing flavor combinations.
