Ingredients

2 beef, filets mignon 300 g
1/2 tsp salt 2 g
1/8 tsp ground pepper 0.4 g
1 shallots, finely chopped 40 g
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
aluminum foil
1 1/2 tbsp Cognac 23 mL
1/4 cup beef broth 65 mL
2 tbsp whole-grain mustard 30 mL
2 tbsp cream 15% 30 mL

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.

Method

  1. Pat the beef dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Finely chop the shallot(s).
  2. Heat the oil and butter 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 them once. Transfer the filets to a cutting board and let stand 10 min, loosely covered with foil (to reabsorb the juices).
  3. While the filets are standing, add the shallot to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until softened, 3-4 min. Deglaze with the Cognac, scraping up any brown bits. Pour in the broth and boil 1 min, then whisk in the mustard, cream, and any beef juice from the cutting board. Bring just to a simmer 1 min, then 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 top.
