How to make Filet Mignon Recipe in Mushroom Sauce
Step 1: Melt 2 tbsp butter with 1 tbsp oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan over med/high heat. Once melted, add the sliced mushrooms and cook for about 6 minutes or until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Then, add the diced onion and continue to cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 2: To the pan, add the minced garlic along with 1 tbsp thyme, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Cook for additional 2 minutes, stirring until the garlic is aromatic. To a large plate, transfer the mushrooms. Using a wet paper towel, wipe the pan clean.
Step 3: With 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper, season all sides of the steaks.
Step 4: Add 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned steak once the butter is hot and finished foaming. For medium rare, sear the steak for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Or 5 to 6 minutes for medium, turning once. To the plate with the mushrooms, transfer the steaks when done.
Step 5: Pour half a cup of red wine into the same pan. Let it boil for about 3 minutes until reduced by half, scraping the bottom of the pan. Next, pour in 1 1/2 cups of the beef broth and allow it to boil for about 5 to 7 minutes until only 2/3 c. of the liquid remains. Then, whisk in half a cup of cream. Let the mixture boil for additional 2 minutes or until a little thickened. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Step 6: Return the steaks and mushrooms to the pan. Over the steak, spoon some of the sauce. Take the pan off the heat once the steaks are heated through and serve right away garnished with some fresh sprigs of thyme. Enjoy!
