Filet Mignon Steaks with the Blues
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com.
2-4 filet mignon steaks
Brush the steaks with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the pepper, herbs, and salt. Place a large good quality heavy bottomed saute pan over high heat until very hot. Add the oil and then the steaks. Sear for about 3-4 minutes, reducing the heat as necessary. Turn meat over, and continue to sear on the other side, until cooked to your liking. Remove to a warm plate. To the hot pan, add the wine and cook and stir for about 30-40 seconds, or until it has reduced to a syrup like consistency. Arrange the steaks on a platter and drizzle the sauce over and then quickly add the spinach to the pan and stir it around to wilt it slightly. Arrange around the steaks, and crumble the cheese over the top. Stand back for the raves and applause.
