Sunday Dinner: Filet Mignon With Truffled Mushroom Ragout

Cooking a romantic meal for your sweetheart is a wonderful way to show your affection. Although it doesn't appeal to everyone, I think a delicious slice of filet mignon is super sexy. It's actually one of my favorite meals! Especially when garnished with a rich mushroom ragout and drizzle of truffle oil. This steak is simple to make and the dish comes together quickly. Sound scrumptious? Wait till you see the recipe!

Filet Mignon With Truffled Mushroom Ragout
From Bon Appetit magazine

3 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
12 ounces crimini or button mushrooms, quartered
1/3 cup canned low-salt chicken broth
1/3 cup dry red wine
3 tablespoons whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons peanut oil
2 1-inch-thick filet mignons (about 6 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon truffle oil*

  1. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add chopped garlic and marjoram; sauté 30 seconds.
  3. Add mushrooms; toss to coat with butter. Sprinkle with salt. Cover and cook until mushrooms have released their juices, about 13 minutes.
  4. Add chicken broth, wine, and whipping cream and bring to boil. Cook uncovered until mushrooms are tender and sauce coats mushrooms, about 5 minutes. Season mushroom ragout to taste with salt and pepper. (Ragout can be made 3 hours ahead. Cover skillet and refrigerate.)
  5. Heat heavy medium skillet over high heat until hot. Add peanut oil and tilt skillet to coat evenly.
  6. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper.
  7. Add to skillet and cook to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  8. Transfer steaks to plates. Rewarm mushroom ragout in skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently. Spoon ragout partially over steaks and onto plates. Drizzle mushrooms on each plate with 1/4 teaspoon truffle oil.

Serves 2.

* Available at Italian markets, specialty foods stores, and some supermarkets.

Wow... this is so wonderful. I really would like to try cooking with truffles more. However, I think the fillet will need to be cooked on the grill.
