When American settlers moved west in the 1800's, the unspoiled land of Oregon was a prime objective. It was, and still is, an ideal place for raising some of the world's finest beef cattle - a fact that is not lost on the man who gave me this recipe, chef Tad Platner at Oregon's Winchester Inn, located in Ashland.


  • For Beef Fillets:
  • Four 10-ounce portions of beef fillets
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons crushed black peppercorns
  • For Marinade:
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 1/3 cups regular or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon wasabi paste, Japanese horseradish, or 2 tablespoon prepared white horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg


Make a few incisions into both sides of the fillets and press in the lemon zest and peppercorns.

Combine the marinade ingredients in a container large enough to hold the liquid and the meat. Place the fillets in the marinade for several hours - ideally overnight in the refrigerator.

Grill the fillets until you reach the point of doneness you desire.

Serve sliced across the grain with heated marinade spooned on top.
