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

  • 3 cloves Garlic roasted* and crushed
  • 5 oz Bleu Cheese Crumbles
  • Salt Pepper, to taste
  • 1 t Fresh Rosemary Chopped

  3. Let sit covered while you whip up the blue cheese topping
  4. Melt butter.
  5. Remove from heat and add blue cheese, fresh rosemary, and roasted garlic and mix to thoroughly combine.
  6. 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.)

Recipe 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.

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.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.

Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.

Famous New Orleans Morning Call Beignets

Famous New Orleans Morning Call Beignets are by far my favorite beignet in the New Orleans area. Served with café au lait beignets are quintessential New Orleans breakfast or late night treat, and makes an awesome brunch dessert.
