Filet Mignon Sauce Madeira
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4
  • 4 half-pound pieces filet mignon
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Madeira wine
  • 3/4 Cup beef broth
  • 3 teaspoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 2 teaspoons parsley, chopped
  1. Sprinkle the meat on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat the oil and when very hot add the filets. Cover and leave on high heat about 5 minutes. Cook longer if you want medium or well-done meat.
  2. Turn the meat and continue cooking over high heat about 5 minutes, or longer if desired. Remove the meat to a warm platter and keep warm. Pour off the fat from the skillet. Add the shallots.
  3. Add the wine and cook over high heat about 30 seconds. Add the broth and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom and sides of the skillet. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Cook until reduced by half.
  5. Meanwhile, blend 2 Tablespoons of butter and flour in small mixing bowl to form a paste (Beurre Manie). Stir it into the simmering sauce and cook briefly.
  6. Swirl in the remaining teaspoon of butter. Strain the sauce over the meat and dot the center of each filet with a dab of parsley.
  7. Serve immediately.
