Filet Mignon with Cabernet Sauce

Just a touch of soy sauce adds depth and balances the wine reduction sauce in this recipe. Butter renders a supple finish to the filet mignon. Use a fresh parsley sprig to garnish, if you like.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2007

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and about 2 tablespoons sauce)
  • Prep time:36 Minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (4-ounce) filet mignon steaks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup cabernet sauvignon
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons butter

Preparation

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle both sides of steaks evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan. Add shallots to pan; sauté 1 minute. Stir in vinegar and soy sauce, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 1 minute or until liquid evaporates, stirring constantly. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, wine, and broth; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 11 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in butter. Serve with steaks.
