Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon With Port Wine SauceFood.com
This is a flavourful and tasty presentation of a very tender cut of beef. We made it for a birthday dinner and it was memorable
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup white onion, minced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
- 3/4 cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup port wine
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 4 filet mignon steaks, 1 1/2-inches thick
- 3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbles
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350°F Heat oil in a cast-iron or other oven-safe skillet over high heat. Sear steaks quickly on both sides until brown, then place the entire pan into the oven.
Roast steaks in the oven for about 15 minutes for medium rare, with an internal temperature of 145°F You may adjust this time to allow the steaks to finish just below your desired degree of doneness if medium is not what you prefer. Remove from the oven. Stir together the bread crumbs and blue cheese. Top each steak with a layer of this mixture.
Preheat the oven's broiler. Place steaks under the preheated broiler until the cheese topping is browned and bubbly, 3 - 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with warm port wine sauce.
Have a great weekend
