Smothered Filet Mignon

For tonight’s dinner filet mignon which I have had tons of request for other recipes for filet of steak. So tonight, your voices have been heard, and your request has been answered.
Let’s Cook!


2 filet mignon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1-1/2 teaspoons butter
1 cup red onion slices
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 ounces blue cheese (Maytag), crumbled
salt and pepper, to taste

Step 1: 

Season steaks with salt and pepper and place in a small baking dish. In a bowl whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and rosemary.

Step 2: 

Pour mixture over filets, coat each side. Marinate for 30 minutes at room tempature.

Step 3: 

While the filets are marinating, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion slices in the butter until soft, then stir in sugar. Continue to cook until onions are caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 4: 

Preheat grill on high heat. While the grill is heating, crumble the blue cheese and put into a bowl. We had some Maytag blue cheese, which really makes a big difference from the pre-crumbled stuff you buy in the plastic containers. The flavor of the cheese is worth the splurge here.

Step 5: 

Place the steaks on the grill and cook for 6 – 8 minutes per side, turning only once.

Step 6: 

When the steaks are about done, turn the heat to low. Top each steak with carmaelized onions.

Step 7: 

Then top with blue cheese.

Step 8: 

Close the lid, and continue cooking until the cheese is melted. Time to plate.

Closing Remarks: 

What better way to enjoy a filet how about smothered? Oh let’s not forget about the wine! :)
Happy Cooking!
