Try this new surf and turf recipe with Natalie’s Famous Garlic Cream Sauce. Packed with protein beef, crab, and shrimp, and flavor blasts of lemon, garlic, and cheese, this dinner will be a winner. This meal is fancy enough for special guests but easy enough to enjoy their company.

This surf and turf recipe calls for a filet mignon, a tender cut of beef from the narrow front part of the tenderloin near the short loin.

A little about our beef:
The families of Painted Hills Natural Beef are ranchers in Wheeler County, Central Oregon. They raise cattle and steward the land in the shadow of the state’s famed Painted Hills for generations. While times have changed in the last two and a half decades, ranching the way nature intended has not. We’re proud to pasture raise our cattle without added hormones and no antibiotics. We raise a beef product for you as striking as the natural wonders it’s named after.

Above all, we thank you for trusting us to feed you and your loved ones. Of course, we’d love to see the finished surf and turf recipe, and we hope you’ll tag us in a post on social media.
