Pair your Filet Mignon with Mushrooms by cooking this scrumptious recipe!
- Heat a large frying pan in high flame. Then heat 1 tablespoon of Time Savor Gourmet Roasted Garlic Oil into the pan.
- Get your Filet Mignon and cut it into ½ inch per chunk. When you’re done cutting your chunks, add them into the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Cook until the color for all sides becomes brown.
When your chunks are thoroughly cooked, remove them from the pan and transfer into a plate. Leave beef aside.
- Put back your pan and heat over medium or high flame. Add the minced shallots and sauté for one minute or until translucent.
After one minute, add the remaining ingredients: sliced white mushrooms, ½ cup of dry red wine, 1 tablespoon of Time Savor Gourmet Garlic Gusto Seasoning, and 1/3 cup of Beef Bouillon.
- Mix the ingredients and scrape the bottom of your frying pan to make sure that the stuck pieces and browning underneath are removed. Simmer your mixture for 2-3 minutes or until the liquid is half reduced and cook over medium heat.
- Next step is to add your beef back into the pan and stir it with the mixture from the previous step. Make sure not to overcook. Stir it until heated.
- When it’s fully cooked, you can now transfer your beef filet mignon with mushrooms into a serving plate. You can serve it with a nice salad or with green beans.
You can also add steamed rice or baked potatoes paired with your Filet Mignon with Mushrooms recipe to complete this delicious meal!

For a thousand of years, mushrooms have been used as food and for medicinal purposes. They are usually classified as an herb or a vegetable, but they are actually fungi.
Most of us loves to pick our own mushrooms by going into the woods, but identifying mushrooms can be very challenging because the color, shape, and size of the fruiting body can extremely change. It is important to carefully identify the mushroom you’re buying or collecting from the woods to avoid the poisonous kinds.
- Mushrooms contain 80 to 90 percent water and are known to be very low in calories. They are an ideal food for those persons who are on a diet or weight management program because mushrooms have very little sodium and fat, and 8 to 10 percent of the dry weight is fiber.
