Petit filet with red wine pan sauce & garlic mash for #SundaySupper

Petit filet and red pan sauce

It’s February, and the month of love! Does anyone else love this month as much as I do? I have the perfect petit filet with red wine pan sauce to celebrate with your sweetie. For me, there is no better way to celebrate than whipping up a delicious meal and sharing good conversation over a glass of wine at home. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being wined and dined at a romantic restaurant for special holidays, but we all know that staying in for Valentine’s Day is more affordable and you can control the ambiance.

Tender petit filets, silky mashed potatoes, perfectly crunchy asparagus, a gorgeous red wine sauce…this meal is the definition of luxurious and even lets the main man in your life help out by grilling the steaks (weather permitting of course). It goes perfectly with a glass or two of your favorite red wine and I recommend eating by candlelight for an added element of romance.

Petit filet with red wine pan sauce & garlic mash for #SundaySupper
Recipe type: Main
  • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ½ lb fresh asparagus
  • 4 tablespoons evoo
  • 2 petit filets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, minced
  • ½ cup red wine
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 8 tablespoons uUnsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup heavy cream, warm
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Heat a large pot of water over medium high heat. When water comes to a boil, add potatoes and garlic cloves and cook 11-13 minutes, or until fork tender; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Lay out asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet; drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat each spear.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and season filets with salt and pepper. Add remaining oil and sear filets, for 2-3 minutes. Flip and insert into the bottom rack of the oven until internal temperature is 135 degrees F. Remove and let rest. Alternatively, you can grill the steaks on the grill per your liking.
  5. Place asparagus on the top rack of a 425 degree oven, roast for 8-10 minutes. Remove and drizzle with lemon juice.
  6. For the red wine pan sauce, deglaze pan with wine, and reduce mixture by half. Add stock, and once again reduce mixture by half. Remove from heat, add 2 tablespoons of butter, and season the pan sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Drain potatoes; using either a potato ricer or masher, mash potatoes and garlic into a mixing bowl. Fold in remaining butter and cream and season potatoes to taste with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  8. Enjoy!
Instead of making the asparagus in the oven, you can place the spears in foil with olive oil, salt and pepper and grill until tender.
