Filet mignon is an expensive steak cut of beef. It is a thick cut from the tenderloin, particularly the small forward end. Apart from being the most delicious steak, it is the tender most cut, that is lean as well as healthy. Usually, a filet mignon measures about five centimeters in thickness and seven to eight centimeters width. It is served in most restaurants, and can also be prepared at home. It can be served as such or with sauces. You may prepare the sauce with different ingredients, like red wine, mushroom sauce, merlot wine, and orange sauce.
Recipe 1
Ingredients
  • Dry red wine - 2½ cups
  • Tomato paste - ¼ cup
  • Unsalted butter (cold) - 6 tbsp.
  • Onion - 1 (cut into thin slices)
  • Minced garlic - 1 tbsp.
  • Dried oregano - 1 tsp.
  • Ground black pepper and kosher salt - as per taste
How to Prepare
Melt two tablespoons of butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, over medium heat. As the butter melts, add the thinly sliced onion and saute till tender. Add a pinch of salt, along with the minced garlic and oregano, and stir for a few seconds. Add the tomato paste and cook for two to three minutes. Make sure to stir the mixture continuously, to avoid burning. Add the wine and cook over low heat, till the mixture reduces to half in volume. It will take around ten minutes for the mixture to reduce in half. Once done, strain the sauce and discard the remaining solids. Place the saucepan over low heat, and add the remaining butter (4 tablespoons). Pour the sauce and simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper. You can serve grilled filet mignon with red wine sauce.

Once done, add tomato paste, rosemary, and Worcestershire sauce to the mixture in the skillet. Combine them well and cook for a minute, over low heat. Add the chopped mushrooms and cook for another three to five minutes. Before removing the sauce from heat, add the mustard. Your filet mignon sauce is ready to serve.
