Ingredients

  • 2 8 ounce filet mignon steaks
  • 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp red crushed pepper optional
  • splash Worcestershire sauce optional
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 
  • Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is nice and hot, add about 1 tbsp of oil. Let the oil heat up for at least 1 minute. 
  • Pat dry the steaks with a paper towel. 
  • Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Add the steaks to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side. 
  • Place the steaks in the oven and cook for 7 minutes or until it reaches an internal temp of 135 degrees F for medium-rare. Remove the steaks from the oven, cover them with aluminum foil, and let them rest for at least 10 minutes. 
  • While the steaks rest, prepare the mushroom sauce. Add butter to a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the thyme, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and red crushed pepper and cook until fragrant. 
  • Add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Remember the steaks are seasoned very generously. 
  • Cook the sauce until nicely thickened, check for seasoning and serve over the steaks. Enjoy! 

Notes

  • Use an oil with a high smoke point to sear the steaks. Such as vegetable oil, canola, or grapeseed oil.
  • Take the steaks out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking otherwise the steaks will cook unevenly and you won't get a nice crust.
