Recipe by Eating in bed
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 1 Sandwich




  • 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.
