Scale

Ingredients

  • 26 ounce filet mignon
  • Steak Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 45 cremini mushrooms quartered
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 shallot sliced
  • 1/2 cup merlot
  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 t honey
  • 1 t fresh thyme

Instructions

  1. Season filets with your favorite steak seasoning or salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat for 5 minutes. Sear filets on all side. It will take about 2 minutes per side to get a nice sear. Place cast iron skillet in 400* oven for 8-12 minutes depending on your desired doneness.
  2. Remove steaks from oven and place on a warmed plate and cover with foil to let rest.
  3. In the same cast iron skillet, melt coconut oil over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and shallots. Cook, stirring frequently until mushrooms are starting to caramelize.
  4. Add merlot to deglaze the pan stirring to release all the brown bits from the skillet. Add vinegar and honey and reduce until syrupy about 5 minutes. Stir in thyme.
  5. Place steak on serving plate and spoon mushrooms over dividing between steaks.
