  • 1 small (3" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 oz Gorgonzola Cheese
  • 12 oz Beef Tenderloin (Trimmed to 1/4" Fat, Prime Grade)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 medium slice (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 oz Portobello Mushroom Caps


Follow the directions below for rare fillets. If you prefer, roast until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted in the center of each fillet registers 135°F for medium rare, 145°F for medium, 160°F for medium-well done or 180°F for well done.

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Arrange rack in center of oven.

  3. Make the Gorgonzola butter: finely chop green portion of scallion and place in a small bowl. Add butter and cheese; stir to combine.
  4. Sprinkle each fillet with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Wrap 1 bacon slice around the side of each fillet; secure with a toothpick.
  5. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add fillets to skillet and cook on all sides, turning frequently with tongs, until browned, about 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Roast 7-10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
  7. Meanwhile, heat same skillet over medium-high heat, add mushrooms, reserved white portion of scallion and remaining 1/8 teaspoon of both salt and pepper.
  8. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are tender, about 4 minutes.
  9. Spoon mushrooms onto serving plates and top with fillets. Serve with Gorgonzola butter.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
