Ingredients

ROASTED TOMATOES

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
4 cloves garlic, crushed
pinch greek oregano
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
pinch brown sugar

PARMESAN POTATO CROQUETTES

4 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
3 green onions, finely sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated parmiggiano-reggiano cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
olive oil, for pan frying

FILET MIGNON

4 steaks, at room temperature
2 tablespoons steak spice (recommended: mccormick montreal)
3 tablespoons canola oil

BALSAMIC SYRUP

1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar* (*cook's note: minimum 7 years old)
1/4 cup real maple syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the roasted tomatoes: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the cherry tomatoes and garlic in a large baking dish in a single layer. Sprinkle them with Greek oregano, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and brown sugar. Mix well. Roast for 40 minutes.
2
To make the Parmesan potato croquettes: Boil the potatoes in enough salt water to cover for 10 to 15 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain. Saute the green onions and garlic in extra-virgin olive oil for a few minutes, until the onions are translucent and garlic is golden. In a big bowl, combine the onion and garlic mixture with the boiled potatoes. Add Parmesan cheese, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and mash together. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3
Pour enough olive oil to come 1/4-inch up the side of a heavy fry pan and heat to 375 degrees F. Roll the chilled potato mixture into finger shapes. Dip the fingers in the beaten egg, then coat them in Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. Fry the croquettes in the hot oil for 30 seconds, until all sides are equally crispy and golden.
4
To make the filet mignon: Season the steaks with a pinch of steak spice. Heat the canola oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Add the steaks to the hot pan. Sear the steaks for 2 minutes on each side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the steaks for another 2 minutes per side. Tent the cooked steaks in aluminum foil and let them rest for 10 minutes.
5
To make the balsamic syrup: Heat a pan on medium-high heat, add equal parts maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce is bubbling and slightly reduced. Serve immediately, drizzled over the filet mignon.
