Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon

This is an easy way to dress up a steak, and it's done with ingredients I usually have on hand.

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon
1/2 cup lump crabmeat, drained
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped green onion
1 tsp. butter, melted
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

In small bowl, combine crab, cheese, onion and butter. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Cut a horizontal slit into each of two steaks within 1/2 inch of the opposite side, forming a pocket. Fill with 1/2 cup crab mixture. Secure with kitchen string or toothpicks if necessary.

Broil 4 inches from heat for 7 to 9 minutes on each side or grill until cooked to your preference. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serves 2.
