Whiskey Filet Mignon

Delicious juicy steak with a Whiskey Sauce.

Two 8 to 10 Ounce Filet Mignons
Salt and Pepper
Your Favorite Whiskey (Mine is Macallan Cask Strength)
Olive Oil
Mozzarella Cheese

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Use a fork to poke holes in both sides of the filet mignon
  3. Rub a considerable amount of salt and pepper on each side of the meat
  4. Heat up a frying pan containing olive oil, butter, salt and pepper
  5. Drizzle a shot on Whiskey on top of the meat, letting it seep into the holes
  6. Drop the filet into the pan, on high heat and pour more shots of whiskey on each side as it cooks
  7. Sear both sides of the filet until dark/nearly burnt
  8. Once the top and bottom of the filet is darkened remove it from the pan and place it in a tin foil bed
  9. Drop butter, mozzarella cheese and another shot of whiskey on top of filet
  10. Bake for about 5-7 minutes or until it reaches your desired cook type - medium rare and medium are my favorites
Serve with Mashed Potatoes.
This recipe came from my new friends over at Food For Dudes. My mouth is watering. Thanks guys.
