Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola Sauce

The sauce for the steaks is an earthy and spicy combination of shiitake mushrooms, Gorgonzola cheese, and chipotle chiles. At Café Sid, we served the Texas Caesar Salad on the side.

ingredients

3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups whipping cream
1 cup Gorgonzola cheese (about 4 ounces)
2 tsp canned chipotle chiles in adobo, minced
8, 6-oz filet mignon steaks

 

preparation

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add shiitake mushrooms and sauté until soft, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and stir 1 minute. Add whipping cream and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer sauce until thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in Gorgonzola cheese and chipotles. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD Sauce can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

Sprinkle steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in another heavy large skillet. Cook steaks in skillet until brown on both sides and cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Rewarm sauce. Transfer 1 steak to each of 8 plates. Pour sauce over steaks and serve.
