exquisite Filet mignon (Beef tenderloin) steak with Brie dish in less time than it takes to order a pizza. The brie melts all over the top of the steak giving it a creamy sauce that’s simply divine.
- 2 Beef tenderloin - fillet mignon – steaks 2-3cm/1” thick
- Salt - to taste
- Black pepper - freshly ground to taste
- 1 tbsp Butter
- 1 tbsp Oil
- Onion - chopped - optional
- Rosemary - sprig fresh or herbes de Provence or tarragon and parsley
- 4 slices Brie
- Bring the steaks to room temperature.(*)
- Make sure to trim any connective tissue or large pieces of fat from the edges of your steaks—it should pull off easily, but you can use a sharp knife.
- Season steaks generously with salt and pepper both sides - set aside.
- Cut Brie. Same thing as your meat, take it from the fridge to come to room temperature so it’s that extra bit creamier.
- Place a skillet, large enough to comfortably fit 2 steaks, on medium high heat until it’s very hot.
- Place butter and oil in skillet.
- If using, add onions and cook until it reduces the volume but does not change colour. Or you can slice the onions (instead of chop) and fry the onions afterwards and serve as a side.
- If not using the onions, double the amount of butter and constantly drizzle butter on steaks with a spoon.
- Add the steaks and give them a firm press into the skillet to make sure the whole surface of the steak is in contact with the skillet. Leave these undisturbed until they’ve cooked 1/3 of the way up the sides.
- 3-5 minutes each side for rare-medium rare or until cooked as desired. Cooking time dependent on how thick and cold the steaks are plus how done you prefer your steaks. You can adjust cooking times to your preferred doneness. Use a quick read thermometer to check the internal temperature of the meat. It is the safest way to know that the steak is cooked to your desired doneness. (**)
- Flip the steaks over and immediately place a slice of Brie on top of each steak. Let the steaks cook until they reach your desired internal temperature (**)
- Remove steaks from skillet and leave to rest for a further 5 minutes. Rest your meat is one of the most important steps in cooking red meat. (***)
|Steak doneness||Internal temperature (subtract 4 F (2 C) from a target temperature to calculate your pull temperature)||Center Colour and touch||Average cooking time in total (flip halfway through)|
|Rare||120-130 F (50-55 C)||Cool red center (Seared on the outside showing bright red color center. Center is slightly cool, soft to the touch, much like the raw meat)||6-8 minutes|
|Medium Rare||130-140 F (55-60 C)||Warm red center (Seared on the outside with the center showing a red color, slightly firmer than rare, firm surface should give a bit toward the middle (it will spring back quickly))||10 minutes|
|Medium||140-150 F (60-65 C)||Warm pink center (Firm to the touch with light pink center)||12 minutes|
|Medium Well||150-160 F (65-70 C)||Slightly pink center (a hint of pink in the very middle, very stiff but still have a little squishy in the center)||14 minutes|
|Well Done||160-170 F (70-77 C)||No pink, firmer meat (there is not the faintest hint of pink in the middle, it should be browned through, not burnt through and solid to the touch)||16 minutes|
VariationsAdd mushrooms (50-100 gram/2-4 ounces) and wine (2 tbsp dry white wine):
- After cook the steak, sauté the mushrooms until they have wilted and are starting to brown.
- Add the wine. The wine deglazes the pan, releasing all the beef flavor caramelized to the bottom of the pan.
- Then reduces it down, let the mixture boil until all of the liquid is gone, coating each mushroom in a tangy flavourful glaze that will balance the rich creamy cheese underneath.
- Cover each steak with the mushroom mixture and serve immediately.
- The time it takes for you to prepare the mushrooms gives the steak just enough time to rest, allowing the meat fibres to relax and reabsorb its juices so that they don’t run all over your plate when you cut into it.
