Fried Filet Mignon Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and minced
  • 1 cup (250 ml) Madeira
  • 2 anchovy fillets, minced to a paste
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 filets mignon
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, except filets mignon, olive oil, and black pepper. Mix well.

Step 2

Preheat large skillet over high heat. Grease both sides of filets with olive oil. Sear in the preheated skillet for 1 minute on each side. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, turning often, until well browned.

Step 3

Remove fried filets from the skillet and transfer to a warm platter. Keep warm.

Step 4

Add minced shallots to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until softened, for about 1 minute. Pour in Madeira, increase the heat to high and, using a wooden spoon, scrape the pan bottom to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until the liquid is reduced by 1/3 cup (80 ml), for 3-4 minutes.

Step 5

Remove Madeira mixture from the heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Season sauce to taste with salt and black pepper. Spoon over warm meat and serve immediately.
