Ingredients

  • Two

    150g Wagyu Filet Mignon

  • Mesclun Salad, washed

  • Salt & black pepper, to taste

  • 1 to 2

    tsp vegetable oil

  • Drizzle olive oil

  • For red wine sauce:

  • 2

    shallots, finely chopped

  • 1/2

    cup red wine

  • 1

    cup beef stock

  • Salt & black pepper, to taste

  • 40

    g cold, unsalted butter

Directions

1. Let steaks come to room temperature before cooking. Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste. Heat pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add in 1 to 2 tsp of vegetable oil. At the first sight of smoke, place the steaks in the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Flip the steaks every 1 minute until they are cooked to your preferred doneness. Use the finger test or a thermometer to check. Lightly sear the sides of the steak and leave to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. 2. In the meantime, prepare the sauce. Add a knob of butter into a pan over medium heat. Stir in shallots and cook until light brown. 3. Deglaze with red wine and reduce it by two-thirds, then add in beef stock and any juices from the resting steaks, Reduce again till the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Turn off the heat and stir in cold butter. 4. Toss salad with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and black pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over steaks and serve with a handful of salad. Enjoy!
