Filet Mignon with Garlic and Blue Cheese

There is nothing better than a grilled Filet Mignon with Garlic and Blue Cheese. Fancy enough for a special occasion but simple and easy for every day.

This is one of my favorite flavor pairings.  The tangy blue cheese with the sharp garlic served over a buttery filet mignon.  My mouth is watering just thinking about the flavors.  My husband doesn’t love blue cheese so I use a sharp Italian cheese like asiago for his filet.  You can experiment with different cheese and spice and herb combinations.

Ingredients

  • 30 oz Filet Mignons - Six 5 oz Filets
  • 2 T salted butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic - roasted* and crushed
  • 5 oz Bleu Cheese Crumbles
  • Salt - Pepper, to taste
  • 1 t Fresh Rosemary - Chopped

Instructions

  • Heat grill heated to 450 degrees
  • Season filets with salt and pepper, to taste
  • Let sit covered while you whip up the blue cheese topping
  • Melt butter.
  • Remove from heat and add blue cheese, fresh rosemary, and roasted garlic and mix to thoroughly combine.
  • Grill filets to the 5 degrees less than the desired temperature. (135 degrees for medium rare and 145 degrees for medium. The USDA suggests cooking to 145 degrees. Remove steaks when the meat thermometer reads 5 degrees less than the desired temperature.)
  • Top with Roasted Garlic Blue Cheese Sauce and cook covered for 1 minute.
  • Remove from grill and serve.

Notes

*To roast garlic:
Drizzle olive oil over a head of garlic, top removed and roast in a 450-degree oven until soft. You can also do this on the grill, just wrap the garlic in heavy duty foil and cook directly on grates. If you only need a couple of cloves you can drizzle cloves with olive oil and cook just what you need.
