In this video I am going to share with you a Beef Fillet Steak with Medley Peppercorn Sauce recipe. Beef Fillet Steak also commonly known as Filet Mignon (French for “tender fillet”) is a steak cut of beef taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin. Beef tenderloin steak, known as eye fillet steak in Australasia is a premium cut of beef and this meat is generally considered to be of ‘fancy restaurant’ quality. Now you can avoid paying the insane price tag by preparing this dish yourself in your own kitchen. This pan seared Beef Fillet Steak is velvety tender and every bite is so flavorful in that medley peppercorn cream sauce. Simply delicious! It’s a perfect dish for that special evening.
Several notes here to share with you:
Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:
To prepare the beef pureed soup, stir fry chopped brown onion, shallot and garlic until golden and add beef stock. Simmer for 20 minutes and pureed with a hand blender.
To prepare each eye fillet steak, oiled and lightly season with salt and pepper on each side. Tie with a cooking string/twine and pan seared on a hot frying pan for 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Place butter on top of each beef fillet steak and cover loosely with an aluminum foil. Let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
To prepare the medley peppercorn sauce, stir fry cracked peppercorn for 5 minutes using the same frying pan. Return beef pureed soup onto pan and bring to boil. Add cream and stir sauce until it thickens to your desired consistency.
Serve beef fillet steak with medley peppercorn sauce and your choice of sides.
Happy cooking ;-)
