Prepared with filets mignons, a very tender cut of beef, this elegant dish is worthy of a special occasion. For the best flavor, cook the meat to medium-rare.

Ingredients:

  • 4 filets mignons, each about 6 oz. and 1 1/4
     inches thick
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 thick bacon slices, cut into 1-inch dice
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 lb. cremini mushrooms, stemmed and
     quartered
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup beef stock
  • 1/3 cup Cabernet Sauvignon wine reduction*
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh thyme

Directions:

Season the filets with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes.

In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the olive oil until almost smoking. Working in batches if needed (do not overcrowd), cook the filets, turning once, until browned on both sides and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 130°F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the filets to a warmed platter and cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the bacon to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Warm the remaining 2 Tbs. oil in the pan, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Stir in the stock, Cabernet wine reduction, bacon, thyme and any accumulated meat juices. Simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the filets to individual plates and spoon the sauce over the meat, dividing evenly. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
