Filet Mignon with Mushrooms and Pinot Sauce
- 2 Filet Mignon Steaks, 8 Oz each
- Kosher Salt
- Fresh Ground Black Pepper
- 2 Bacon Strips
- 2 tbsps Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 lb Assorted Mushrooms
- 1 tsp Garlic, Finely Chopped
- 2 Rosemary Sprigs
- 2 cups Pinot Noir
- 2 tbsps Prepared Demi-Glace
- 2 tbsps Butter, Unsalted
Pairing Notes: Filets are luxuriously tender cuts of meat, and a perfect match for Mariah’s soft, silky tannins. The mushrooms bring out the wine’s earthy notes, while the seared steak accentuates the bright-red fruit.
Chef’s Tip: We recommend reducing the amount of Pinot noir to 1 cup. Also feel free to skip the bacon; the recipe will still be delicious.
