Jerk Beef on Plantain Chips Recipe

  • 1 (4-inch-long) piece center-cut beef tenderloin
  • 2 teaspoons jerk seasoning paste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons cocktail onions, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 24 store-bought plantain chips
  1. Quarter beef lengthwise and pat dry. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and rub jerk paste all over beef.
  2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add beef and sear, turning, 4 to 5 minutes total. Let rest on a cutting board 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  3. Finely chop onions and cilantro together. Top plantain chips with beef, then with onion salsa.
