Filet Mignon, Mushrooms and Pinot Noir Sauce

Raven Higheagle


I’ve been wanting to try to cook my steak this way: searing the sides and then finishing it in the oven. I’ve never done this before because my husband, our resident grill master, always grills the steaks outside.
So, I thought..what better meal to make for my hard working husband for Father’s Day? A steak that I can make all on my own and he doesn’t have to lift a finger.
And what better day to go all out and buy filet mignons! We definitely had a treat when devouring this..and it’s not even Father’s Day yet so Bubba gets to enjoy this again. He’s a lucky man.

How to Make Filet Mignon, Mushrooms and Pinot Noir Sauce


  • 1For the beef demi-glace:
    Combine the beef stock, mushroom stock and sherry in a large pot over medium high heat.
  • 2Bring up to a boil and then add the hydrated, chopped mushroom medley mix.
  • 3After about 30 seconds, reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer until the sauce has thickened and is reduced to half, for at least an hour or so.
  • 4For the steaks:
    While the sauce is simmering, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • 5Pat your steaks dry with a paper towel and season both sides of each filet mignon generously with salt and pepper.
  • 6Wrap a piece of bacon around the sides of each steak and secure with toothpicks or butcher’s twine.
  • 7Using a heavy, ovenproof skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat, for about 2 minutes.
  • 8Place the steaks in the hot pan and cook until well seared on one side, for about 3 minutes.
  • 9Turn the steaks over to sear the other side and immediately transfer the skillet to the oven to finish cooking for about 7 to 8 minutes or until your steaks have reached the desired internal temperature*.
  • 10While the filets are in the oven, using a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • 11After a minute to two, add the sliced mushrooms, garlic and rosemary and cook until the mushrooms are soft, for about 5 to 6 minutes. Set aside.
  • 12After your steaks have reached the desired internal temperature, remove from the oven.
  • 13Take the steaks out of the skillet, move to a plate and cover well in order to keep warm.
  • 14Return the skillet to the stove over medium-high heat.
  • 15Deglaze with the Pinot Noir wine, scraping up all the browned bits.
  • 16Mix in the beef demi-glace, stirring to combine.
  • 17Add the steaks and mushrooms to the pan and coat in the pan sauce.
  • 18Finish with a tablespoon of butter on top of the steaks.
  • 19To plate: serve the steaks on a bed of the mushrooms and pour a little of the pinot noir sauce over the steaks.
  • 20Serve immediately.
