Blackened Filet Mignon Steak and Mushrooms Recipe

Blackened Filet Mignon Steak and Mushrooms Recipe

Things You’ll Need: Filet Mignon, Olive Oil, Shiitake Mushrooms, Crimini Mushrooms, Black Pepper, Brandy, Beef Stock, Bulb of Garlic, Gorgonzola

HEAT - 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook them until they are soft. Remove from pan and set aside.

WIPE the pan. Add another teaspoon of olive oil and raise the heat to high.

PAT the steaks dry. Cover each side with pepper (I prefer grinding whole black peppercorns). Sear steaks on both sides until a crust forms. Turning only once. Remove the steaks from the pan.

POUR the brandy in the pan and light it on fire baby! When the flame dies down add the beef stock and roasted garlic (see my article on how to roast garlic). Keep cooking until the sauce is reduced, add salt and pepper to taste.

RETURN the steaks to the pan with their juices. Add the mushrooms and heat for 1 minute. Serve the steaks by spooning the mushroom and sauce on top and sprinkling gorgonzola cheese on top.

This blackened filet mignon steak and mushroom recipe is a gourmet level recipe that you will really enjoy.
