How To Cook Perfect Filet Mignon Recipe in Mushroom Cream Sauce


Hey everyone, its Natasha of Natashaskitchen.com. I’m gonna show you how to make a fancy, restaurant quality, filet
mignon at home. This is our go-to recipe for filet mignon. It’s so juicy, flavorful
and unforgettably good. This is a simple, one pan meal that comes together in 30
minutes. So let’s get started. It’s smart to have everything prepped and ready to
go when you need it. The prep is easy. Start by thickly slicing one pound of
mushrooms, set those aside for later and finely dice 1 small onion. Place a
large heavy bottomed pan over medium-high heat and melt in two
Tbsp of butter and one Tbsp of oil. Once the butter is done sizzling,
add sliced mushrooms and cook for about 6 minutes or until they’re softened and
most of the mushroom liquid has evaporated. Now add your diced onions and
stir for another 3 minutes or until the onions are softened. Meanwhile strip 1
Tbsp of fresh thyme leaves from their stems like so and finely chop. Also
peel and finely chop 4 garlic cloves. Once the onions are softened, add minced
garlic 1/4 tsp of salt 1/8 of a tsp of black pepper and 1
tsp of fresh thyme. Cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until the
garlic is fragrant then turn off the heat and transfer the mushrooms to a
large plate. Wipe the pan clean with a wet paper towel. You’ll need four beef
tenderloin steaks about 6 ounces each and ideally one and a half inches thick.
Season steaks all over with 1 tsp of salt and a quarter tsp of black
pepper. Place the same pan over medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp
of butter and one Tbsp of oil. When the butter is hot and finished foaming,
add the seasoned steaks and sear 3 to 5 minutes per side, turning once for
medium-rare. Keep in mind, thinner steaks will take less time and
thicker steaks will take longer. Once the steaks are at your desired
doneness, remove them from the pan and put them on
the plate with the mushrooms. In the same pan add half a cup of red wine and boil
it down about three minutes or until reduced by half, scraping the bottom to
deglaze. Add one and a half cups of beef broth and boil until 2/3 cups of liquid
remains in the pan. It takes about five to seven minutes. Now stir in 1/2 cup of
cream and boil another two minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened.
You can season the sauce with more salt and pepper if desired
then place the steaks and the mushrooms back in the pan with any accumulated
juices. Spoon some hot mushroom sauce over the steaks and as soon as they’re
warmed through, take them off the heat. We’ve got the filet mignon, we’ve got the
flowers and we’ve got a date night in with the cameraman, who also happens to
be my husband who’s patiently waiting for this. Okay, aprons off, we’re gonna do
a taste test! All right and I like my steak medium-well so I’ll go grab one of
