  • Blue Cheese-Crusted Filet Mignon

  • 4 six ounce filet mignons

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 8 oz Blue cheese

  • 2 Slices whole grain bread cubed

  • Half stick Butter

  • 2 sprigs fresh Rosemary

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • Pan Sauce

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 0.5 cup heavy whipping Cream


  • Blue Cheese-Crusted Filet Mignon:

  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • 2.

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • 3.

    Season the filets and rub with olive oil. Place in the hot pan and sear for 1 minute on each side.

  • 4.

    Place on a cooling rack fitted over a baking sheet. Reserve the pan.

  • 5.

    Puree the blue cheese, bread, butter, rosemary and pepper in a food processor until smooth.

  • 6.

    Pack blue cheese crust onto the tops of the filets and bake in oven until meat is medium-rare, about 8-10 minutes.

  • 7.

    The meat and crust may be prepared in advance, refrigerated, then baked just before serving. If so, add a little more baking time.

  • Pan Sauce:

  • 1.

    Add the wine to the searing pan over medium-high heat.

  • 2.

    Scrape loose the brown bits and reduce the wine to a syrup-like consistency.

  • 3.

    Whisk in the cream and continue to reduce until the mixture thickens to a sauce like consistency.

  • 4.

    Season and serve with the filets.

This was very good. I used only a tablespoon of butter as not sure what 1/2 a stick is. The pan red wine sauce went really well with the cheese.
