280 calories per serving 


1/4 cup red wine   65 mL
1/4 cup beef broth   65 mL
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar   35 mL
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard   2.5 mL
1 tbsp brown sugar   12 g
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed    
1/2 tsp peppercorns, lightly ground   1 g
2 beef, filets mignon   300 g
  resealable plastic bag    
2 tsp olive oil   10 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  aluminum foil    


  1. In a bowl, mix the wine, broth, balsamic vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, garlic and half the pepper. Pour half of this marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Set the rest of the marinade aside. Put the steaks in the bag, then turn it to coat them well. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 h to overnight.
  2. Let the steaks stand at room temperature ½ hour before cooking. Preheat the outdoor grill and oil the rack.
  3. Grill 3 to 4 min then turn. Sprinkle with the remaining pepper and continue to cook about 3 to 4 min for medium-rare or until the desired level of doneness. Add a little salt. Alternatively, the steaks may be cooked in the oven at 'broil'. Transfer the steaks to a plate then let stand 10 min, loosely covered with foil (to reabsorb the juices).
  4. Meanwhile, put the remaining marinade in a small pot. Let simmer 8 to 10 min, until it is reduced at about half. Serve the steaks with the sauce.
