Recipe

The 50 percent of Americans who think filet mignon is the best way to say “I love you” will fall in love with this Filet Mignon with Herb-Butter Sauce and Mushrooms. The pairing of the filet mignon, beef’s most tender steak, and flavorful herb butter and mushrooms make this special meal the perfect way to capture a moment in time in a way that only beef can.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Cooking time: 30 To 35 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (filet mignon), cut 1 inch thick (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 ½ cups assorted mushrooms (shiitake, enoki, straw, cremini, button, or chanterelle), whole or cut in half if large
  • ¼ cup minced shallots
  • 1 ½ cups beef broth
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place beef steaks in skillet; cook 10 to 13 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove to platter, season with salt and pepper, as desired. Keep warm.

2. Heat butter in same skillet over medium heat until melted. Add mushrooms and shallots; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and browned. Add beef broth and thyme to skillet, stirring until browned bits attached to bottom of pan are dissolved; bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch with water in a small bowl; stir into mushroom mixture. Cook 2 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

3. Serve steak with sauce.
