    6       oz           Slice filet mignon, about 1
                         -1/2 to 3 inches wide
      1/8   ts           Fresh lime juice,
                         -approximately
                         Sea salt
                         Freshly ground pepper
 
   Place the beef between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound, pushing it
   outward as you go, to a rough oval shape.  Fold into a package and pound
   out again to the required size.  Peel off the top plastic wrap and replace
   with wax paper.  Turn meat over and replace second sheet of plastic with
   wax paper; set aside until ready to use.
   
   Heat a griddle.  When very hot, grease lightly.  Remove top paper. Sprinkle
   the exposed side of the meat with lime juice and salt and pepper and lay it
   face down, with the aid of the paper, on the griddle. Strip off the bottom
   paper.  Cook for about 2 seconds, flip the meat over with two spatulas so
   it will not break in the middle, and cook for 2 seconds more. Serve
   immediately, flat if possible, on a large plate with refried beans, and
   fresh salsa of your choice.
