Filet Mignon with Sweet Bourbon Coffee Sauce

Filet Mignon in sweet Bourbon Sauce is one of my favorite Filet recipes around. Again, if you can pair gourmet food with booze and not suffer the wrath, please let me in on that recipe! In the grand tradition of cooking with caffeine, this recipe holds a special place in my heart for a multitude of reasons.

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon beef-flavored bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 6 oz Filet Mignon Steaks
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Sprinkle pepper and salt over both sides of steaks. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steaks; cook 2 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium; cook steaks 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Transfer steaks to a platter; cover and keep warm. Add bourbon mixture to pan; cook over medium-high heat until mixture has reduced to 1/4 cup (about 3 minutes). Serve sauce over steak; sprinkle with parsley.

Somehow after reading this recipe, the raw organic pumpkin seeds I keep at my desk just aren't cutting it. Amen regarding food and booze. I had a lobster salad once with a killer vodka mayonnaise. It was sort of a variation of a salad nicoise. Sweet lobster, soft potatoes, crisp green beans, sweet juicy tomatoes, and a creamy vodka mayo dressing. Yum!
