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

Tasting 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.

Serena's tips: We recommend reducing the amount of Pinot noir to 1 cup. Also feel free to skip the bacon; the recipe will still be delicious.
