Filet with Potatoes, Spinach, and Salad March 4, 2008

Filed under: Beef — tiffanyrose913 @ 5:59 pm


Haven’t cooked since last wednesday  – so I was really hungry for my favorite steak – Filet Mignon!  I saw this recipe for the sauce in CL, and I just had to try it.  I am not a fan of mustard, or any condiments , but this sauce tasted awesome and did not taste like mustard at all!

First – I cut up a mixture of sweet potatoes and yams , and roasted them in the oven, @ 425 with just some OO, Salt, Pepper, and some Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic sprinkled on top.

Then I started with my sauce for my steak. 

1 shallot cut up in small pieces

1/2 cup of shiraz

1/2 cup of beef broth

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Saute shallots in a small amount of OO.  Add Shiraz and deglaze sauce pan.  Once reduced add beef broth, once that is reduced add the mustard – Voila – sauce that taste JUST like a restaurant!

For the Filet’s – I sear all sides in a sauce pain, then put in the broiler for about 5 minutes for medium.  I complimented the meal with a spinach salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, shallots, and queso fresca cheese ( I have a ton of it because mike bought a wheel of it at sams club LOL ) 

While the steaks are in the broiler, I saute the spinach in OO , garlic, a few red pepper flakes and a dash of nutmeg –  Delish!
