Directions See How It's Made
- Firstly, take your Filet, put it in a Ziplock bag, and smash it with, either, a meat mallet or a wooden spoon.
- Tenderize both sides and put the Filet in the Freezer for 20 - 30 Minutes, until slightly firm.
- Slice your Mushroom, Onion, Pepper, and Shallot into 1/8' strips.
- Heat a Wok or Saute Pan to Medium Heat.
- Add 2 teaspoons Olive Oil (Reserving 1 Tsp for the Filet).
- Add Veggies, season with 1 Tsp of Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder.
- Stir to Combine.
- Saute for 10-15 minutes until the veggies begin to caramelize.
- Set Aside.
- Cut a 6' slice from the French Bread and toast until golden.
- Turn off Toaster, but add Smoked Gouda to toast and leave it in the toaster (if you have a toaster oven).
- Remove Filet from Freezer (Keep the Filet in the Ziplock).
- Slice Filet into thinnest strips you can manage, then cut down the center perpendicularly.
- Heat Wok/Saute Pan to Medium-High Heat.
- Add 1 remaining teaspoons Olive Oil.
- Saute for 4-7 Minutes until no pink is showing (This allows for the meat to stay close to Medium Rare).
- For plating, start with the toast with cheese, then top with veggies and finish with a layer of Filet.
