F'n Good!

Filet Mignon with Rosemary and Mushroom Gravy

ingredients

4 servings
Steaks

Vegetable oil cooking spray


2 (8-ounce) filet mignon steaks


Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


3 tablespoons olive oil

Gravy


2 tablespoons olive oil


2 large or 4 small shallots, minced


2 cups (about 5 ounces) assorted mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake and button, coarsely chopped


Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


cup dry Marsala wine


1 cups low-sodium beef broth


1 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves


1 tablespoons all-purpose flour


3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
instructions

Steaks

Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a small baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside. Season the steaks with salt and pepper, to taste. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and brown on all sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes for medium-rare doneness. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board.


Gravy

In the same skillet used for the steak, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and mushrooms and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until the shallots are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and scrape up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the beef broth and rosemary. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until half of the liquid has evaporated and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cutting across the grain, slice the steak into 1/4-inch thick slices and arrange on a platter. Pour the sauce into a serving bowl and serve alongside the meat.

I'm pursuing my lifelong quest for the perfect, the absolutely driest martini to be found in this or any other world. And I think I may have hit upon the perfect formula :
