2 beef, filets mignon 300 g
15 mL Garlic-Infused Oil 1 tbsp
aluminum foil
1/4 cup Allergen-Free Vegetable Broth
1/2 tbsp paprika 5 g
1 tbsp Dijon mustard 15 mL
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce 10 mL
2 tbsp lactose-free cream, 35%, for whipping 30 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

For proper cooking all the way through the filet, it is important to let it stand at room temperature ½ hour before cooking.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Pat the beef dry and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the garlic-infused oil in a heavy skillet over moderate heat, until hot but not smoking. Add the filets and sauté about 4 min on each side for medium-rare, turning once. Transfer the filets to a cutting board and let stand, loosely covered with foil, 10 min (to reabsorb the juices).
  3. While the filets are standing, deglaze the skillet with the broth, scraping up brown bits. Bring to a boil, then cook 1 min. Reduce the heat then add the paprika and cook 2 min with stirring. Whisk in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lactose-free cream, and any beef juice from the cutting board. Bring just to a simmer and cook 1 min. Add salt and pepper to taste. Thin the sauce with a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
  4. Serve the filets on the warmed plates, with the sauce spooned on the top.
