This is an elegant starter course, or serve as a main for just 2 to 3 people. Chef Jean-Francois of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise uses dried pine needles instead of the rosemary as the chef’s cooking philosophy is all about local.

Heat oil over medium-high heat in heavy skillet; add beef and cook, turning until golden brown all over, about 5 minutes.
