The sauce alone of this Filet Mignon is more than enough for me! Serve this with mashed potatoes or rice, and you have yourself a meal to remember! Have a beautiful day, friends. Enjoy!

Yield: 4 Servings
24 ounces filet mignon (beef tenderloin) steaks, 6-8 ounces each, about 1 1/2″ thick
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced (or 1 teaspoon dry thyme)
16 ounces baby Bella mushrooms, thickly sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c Merlot wine, or any dry red wine
1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, we use sea salt, divided
1/2 c whipping cream
1 1/2 c beef broth
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Place a pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Add 1 tbsp of oil and allow it to become hot.
Add 2 tbsp of butter and allow it to melt.
Add the mushrooms, then sauté until soft.
Add the onion and sauté until translucent.
Add the garlic and sauté until aromatic.
Add 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tbsp thyme, and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Stir until well blended.
Transfer the sauteed ingredients onto a clean plate. Use paper towels to wipe clean the pan.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over the steaks, then rub each until well coated.
In the empty pan, add 2 tbsp of butter and allow it to melt.
Add the steaks, then sear each side for a few minutes until they turn brown.
Move the steaks onto the plate with the sauteed veggies.
In the empty pan, pour in 1/2 cup of red wine. Scape the bottom of the pan to get the browned bits. Simmer for a few minutes until it reduces its volume.
Add 1/2 cup of cream and stir until well blended. Allow the mixture to boil until the texture becomes a bit thick. Add salt and pepper if needed.
Add the mushrooms and steaks back into the pan, then toss everything until well coated by the delicious sauce.
Sprinkle fresh sprigs over each serving to garnish.
Serve and enjoy!
