Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 (8 ounce) filet mignon steaks
Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic chives


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Season filets to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil in a heavy, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Sear steaks until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

Transfer steaks to preheated oven, and cook for about 10 minutes, or to desired doneness. When the steaks are done, set aside to rest in a warm place while finishing the sauce.

Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and ginger, cook gently until fragrant and translucent, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Add the shiitake mushrooms and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.

Pour in sake and mirin; reduce by half. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup of butter. Once melted, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until the butter turns a dark golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in chives. Serve sauce over steaks.
