Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Yield: Serves 2-4.

    As with any recipe that calls for a substantial amount of wine, use a wine that you enjoy drinking. The sauce in this recipe is just a concentrated version of the wine with some butter and pan juices. So, if you don’t like the wine to start, it will not make a good sauce. Pick a wine you like.

    Ingredients

    2-4 filet mignon steaks, 1 to 2 inches thick*
    Salt
    Canola or grape seed oil
    3-4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
    2 cups full bodied red wine (we used a favorite Zinfandel)
    Black pepper to taste

      *If you have thicker steaks, you can butterfly them and cook on the stovetop as directed here, or you can sear them on the stovetop and finish them in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes or more, until the center of the steaks are done to your liking.

      Method


      1. Your steaks should already be trimmed of the tough silverskin. If not, cut away any gristly bits. If your steak has the chain attached and you don’t want to serve it, cut it away and save for another purpose.


      2. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 90 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Just before getting ready to cook, pat the meat dry with paper towels, then coat with the canola or grape seed oil. Salt well.


      3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a cast iron pan on high heat for 1 minute. Swirl to coat the pan. Put the steaks in the hot pan and immediately turn the heat down to medium to medium high (depending on your stovetop, medium on a high BTU gas range is about medium high on most electric ranges). Sear untouched for at least 3 minutes, up to 6 minutes for a 2-inch thick steak.


      4. Flip the steaks and cook for another 2-5 minutes, depending on how thick the steak is and how rare or well done you like your meat. You can use the finger test to test the doneness of your steak. Or you can use Chef Remi Cooking Thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak (120°F to 125°F for rare, 130°F to 135°F for medium rare, 140°F to 145°F for medium). Remove from the pan, loosely tent with foil and allow to rest while you make the sauce.


      5. Pour the wine into the pan and turn the heat to high. Boil this furiously until it is reduced by 3/4, about 10 minutes. Add any juices the steaks have released while resting. Turn off the heat and wait until the wine has stopped bubbling. When it has, add the tablespoons of butter, one tablespoon at a time. Swirl each tablespoon into the sauce until it is completely incorporated before adding the next tablespoon of
      butter. Add salt to taste and serve the sauce with the steak. Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper over the meat when you serve it.


      Sit down and enjoy!

      What people are saying about us:

      • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

      • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

      • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

        By grace jones

      • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

        By Aly's Max

      • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
