Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Heat a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add Open Prairie Natural beef tenderloin steaks and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer skillet with steaks to oven and cook until steaks barely spring back when pressed on top with a finger, about 6 minutes for medium-well. Remove from oven and season with salt and pepper, as desired. Transfer each steak to a plate and let stand for 3 to 5 minutes.
To make romesco: In food processor (or in a blender in batches), pulse bell pepper, almonds, garlic and vinegar until combined. With machine running, gradually pour in olive oil to make a coarse sauce. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
Serve steaks with romesco.
Serving Suggestions: Serve with oven-roasted potatoes and sautéed green beans with Marcona almonds.
Beverage: Enjoy with a red Rioja wine.
