Peppered Filet Mignon With Mushroom Wine Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dawn399

My husband and I were at a wedding reception at a very posh country club. He was served the most marvelous fillet mignon there, I opted for the chicken. It was my mission then to find this recipe and make a duplicate. He only allowed me a bite of steak the size of a grape with a small amount of sauce on it (and that was grudgingly). The last place I thought I would find a good steak recipe was Cooking Light, but there it was! Now when we need to impress, we serve this recipe. It tastes like a dish you'd be served at a five-star Hotel.

Dawn, I signed up just to tell you how great this recipe is. It's the best and one of the easiet filet mignon recipes I've ever made. I was hesitate to try it without a grill to cook the meat on since that's about the only way I like my steaks cooked. Only thing I changed was I added a 2x more tomato paste - only because I like tomato-ey flavors, briefly cooked a little minced garlic with the steaks, then quickly removed the garlic and added to the sauce (before it burned), and added some steak drippings - I used olive oil and butter -to the sauce when the steaks were done. Awesomely good. Thanks for sharing. I hope you'll post more of your recipes.
