Recipe Date:

Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 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.
