Why I Love This Recipe

Pairing Fillet Mignon with Short Ribs is one of my all time favorites. When you are finished cooking the short Ribs, you will have the most fantastic stock. I strain and chill the stock. The next day, I remove all the fat and place the stock in a large saucepan and add about 12 cloves of peeled garlic and 5 sprigs of thyme. I ten turn the heat up and let the stock reduce by 2/3rds . It can be frozen at this point and used whenever you need. This is the way to go! To make the presentation a little nicer, after I slice the fillet, I place it on the short rib bone and place some short ribs next to it. It is then sauced and served. Wow!

Eight 3 bone short ribs cut 1" thick by 4" long
Four 4 ounce prime filet mignon steaks, seasoned with sea salt, pepper, olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Season short ribs with sea salt, pepper, dry mustard, paprika, and flour. Heat 1/3 cup olive oil in a large skillet; brown short ribs on all sides.

Remove from skillet and add the vegetables to the roasting pan where the meat is now.

Add water to skillet to where meat and vegetables were cooked in. Bring to boil; pour water over short ribs to cover. Cover with tin foil. Bake 350 degrees for 2 hours. Reduce heat to 275 degrees and bake 3 hours more. Strain and place broth in refrigerator. Chill overnight and remove the fat. Reduce to 1 cup with minced garlic. Strain.

Add remaining onions to skillet and sauté until very brown. Deglaze pan with cognac. Add reduced reserved broth. Reduce until slightly thickened, stir in butter and keep warm. Slice fillet 1/8" thick. Heat short ribs until hot. Remove thin layer of fat that attached short rib to bone and place short rib on half on the bone. Place slices of steak on other half of bone.
