Grassfed Tenderloin Steak Bites with Roasted Garlic & Lemon Bone Marrow Butter Recipe

Looking for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner? You'll love these Grassfed Tenderloin Steak Bites with Roasted Garlic & Lemon Bone Marrow Butter. Tenderloin tips are the small pieces from the end of the loin left over after cutting filets. These incredible, bite-sized morsels of filet are even more decadent after being tossed in roasted garlic & lemon bone marrow butter.   

If you've never roasted marrow bones – don't worry, this underrated superfood couldn't be easier to prepare! Simply drizzle with olive oil, season with salt & pepper, and roast in the oven. That nourishing, rich bone marrow will be soft and scoopable after just 20 minutes. Of course, collagen rich marrow is scrumptious on its own, but when mixed into salted grassfed butter along with roasted garlic, herbs, and lemon – it's truly remarkable. You'll want to enjoy it on just about everything or simply eat it with a spoon. Enjoy these delicious grassfed steak bites with a fresh salad and toasted baguette (spread with marrow butter), roasted vegetables, or a baked potato. Let's get cooking!

  • 1 head of garlic

For the Roasted Garlic & Lemon Bone Marrow Butter – 

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place bones cut side up on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and season with kosher salt and pepper. Cut the top quarter off the head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Placing cut side down, wrap in parchment paper or foil. 

Place bones and garlic into the preheated oven. Roast bones for 20-25 minutes (internal temp should be 145°). Once bones are done, reduce oven temp to 400° and continue roasting garlic another 20-30 minutes, until cloves are very soft and caramelized.

Place softened butter in a medium bowl. Using a spoon, scrape roasted marrow into the bowl. Squeeze garlic cloves out of the roasted head of garlic into the bowl next, followed by thyme leaves, minced parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Using a handheld mixer (or transferring to a stand mixer bowl), whip the butter for 3-4 minutes, until light & fluffy. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Cover and chill until ready to use, making sure to remove from fridge 30 minutes prior to serving if you'd like a soft spreadable marrow butter.

For the Grassfed Tenderloin Steak Bites – 

If you prepared the marrow butter in advance, bring it out from the fridge to come to room temperature. Generously season both sides of tenderloin tips with kosher salt. Cut into large chunks and pat steak pieces completely dry. Drizzle a splash of avocado oil or melted tallow over them and toss to coat.

Place a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, add 5-6 steak pieces, making sure to not overcrowd the pan, which will cause the meat to steam rather than achieve a golden brown crust. Sear for 2-3 minutes per side, working in batches until all steak bites are cooked to your desired temperature (we aim for 130°F medium-rare, keeping in mind the meat will carryover cook while it rests).

In a medium bowl, place a few spoonfuls of marrow butter, and place the hot steak bites on top. Toss to coat once the butter melts. Garnish with a flaky finishing salt, if desired, or finely minced parsley. Enjoy!
