Fillet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Wine Sauce


1/2 stick of unsalted butter
4 shallots, minced
1/2 pound of shitake mushrooms stems removed or other wild mushrooms. You may also substitute regular button mushrooms.
2 cups of dry red wine, divided
1 can of beef stock
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
4 fillet steaks about 1/4 lb each (you may use large steaks if you wish)
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp dried thyme
Fresh thyme for garnish
Parsley for garnish
Buy the highest quality fillets that you can afford for this dish. Grass feed beef has a totally different flavor that lot fed beef. We like to use wild mushrooms in the sauce because of their deeper flavor.


  • Melt half of the butter in a large saute pan. (do not use non stick)
  • Add the fillets and cook searing both sides. Cook until medium rare. About 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Remove fillets from the pan and set aside. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Add the shallot to the same pan and saute for 3 to 4 minutes removing the brown bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes using medium heat.
  • Using medium high heat add the red wine beef stock and soy sauce. Reduce by almost half. About 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Add the dry thyme and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the other half of the butter to the sauce and stir until sauce is very glossy.
  • Add the steaks to the sauce and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Place the steaks on individual plates and pour sauce over.
  • Garnish with fresh thyme and or parsley.
