Went to the store to get some cheeses for a pizza I was going to make tonight and spotted a nice ahi tuna steak and did a pivot for dinner.
I already had filet mignon in the fridge and I just took that out and threw some olive oil and then coated it thickly with Montreal steak rub. I then created a marinade for my ahi tuna. I then pulled some mustard greens from the garden to start once the proteins were close to being done.
I started a reverse sear on the filet mignon steak and put the ahi tuna steak on 3/4 of the way for it to get some smoke before I started the sear. I let the filet mignon get to about 108 fahrenheit and the ahi tuna reached about 92 degrees. I then took then both off the Trager and ramped set the temp to 425 and put them both back on once the temperature climbed to 385. I marinated the filet mignon with butter salt and pepper mix I had melted in the microwave. I hit the ahi tuna with more marinade on both sides. I took the tuna up to 125 and the steak to 135 and then took them off.
During the searing I had started the vegetables putting onions, garlic cloves in the wok and then the greens and some yellow pear tomatoes and cherry tomatoes whole with a touch of basil all from the garden except the garlic and onions.
Ended up being so delicious and tender that when cutting the filet mignon it was as tender as the tuna which was just right. Both had a great unique flavor to go with the vegetables.
Below is the recipe I used for the ahi tuna except of course I did a reverse on .
Seared Ahi Tuna
2 (6 to 8 ounce) ahi tuna steaks (3/4 inch thick)
For the marinade:
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari)
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
1 scallion, thinly sliced (a few slices reserved for garnish)
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
I wanted to add that to monitor the temperature I used the internal wired Traeger thermometer for the filet mignon and for the Meater Bluetooth temperature monitor I picked up the past Saturday for monitoring the temperature of my tuna steak.
