Filet Mignon with Brandy Cream Sauce

Tender filet mignon enrobed in a creamy, brandy-scented sauce and garnished with a sprinkle of fresh thyme--now that's luxury! Enjoy this stellar entree with a glass of your favorite Burgundy.

Ingredients

Serves
2
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons Glace de Viande Gold® dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 6-ounce filet mignons (beef tenderloin steaks)
  • Chopped fresh thyme for garnish

Methods/steps

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Add the shallots and cook until they're tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the brandy and cook until the brandy has almost completely evaporated.
  3. Add the thyme, diluted Glace de Viande Gold®, and cream.  Bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook until it coats a spoon, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Remove the thyme sprig and season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.  Set aside, covered.
  5. Season the filets with salt and pepper.  Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat.  When the pan is hot, add the remaining tablespoon of the butter.  As soon as it is melted, add the steaks and sauté them, turning once, until they're cooked to your liking, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to warm plates.
  6. Pour the sauce into the skillet in which the steaks were cooked.  Over low heat warm the sauce, stirring to scrape any browned bits from the pan into the sauce and incorporate any pan juices.  To serve, ladle the sauce over the steaks and garnish them with chopped fresh thyme.
