Pan-Seared Filet Mignon (Beef Tenderloin) with Shiraz Sauce

Simple, impressive and elegant. The sauce is very concentrated in flavor and velvety in consistency.

FABULOUS recipe and amazingly easy (thanks to the detailed instructions). Only required my husband's help to make sure it was timed just right. The only thing we'd change was less tomato paste and would cook slightly less - ours was medium/well. This will be a recipe we use for many years to come!

Made this today for my husbands birthday. Paired it with some baked stuffed shrimp! Wow! Best surf and turf ever! It was so worth the time and grocery bill! He absolutely loved it as did I!! I suggest everyone try this!!

Wonderful sauce and very easy to make. Sauce is great with a bold Cabernet too.

Gorgeous sauce! Would use again and again! I am using the left over sauce and some sandwich steak on a hot baguette for my lunch today!

The sauce is very good, and it's relatively easy to prepare.

Outstanding recipe! Great directions to cook a perfect steak and the Shiraz sauce was simply fantastic! What a great wine for both cooking and drinking. My wine guy talked me into buying both an imported Australian and a domestic Californian Shiraz. I'm glad he did. Both were fantastic wines. When tasted side by side, to me, the Australian was slightly smoother in both aroma and taste, while the Californian seemed slightly sweeter. However, tasted separately, I could not tell which was which? So, when considering that the Californian was very inexpensive, and even at almost twice the cost, the Australian was still quite affordable. I will be using the Californian Shiraz for most of my cooking and drinking needs and reserve the Australian Shiraz for drinking on special occasions. You know, buy American and do my part for the US economy.

My god, this was good! My youngest daughter had never had filet mignon....i told her "now you know what to order when on a date"

Fantastic. Easy. It will change (for the better) or validate people's thoughts on your ability to cook! If only filet mignon went on sale more often :-).

Restaurant quality preperation and absolutely delicious!

Came out perfectly. Only thing I would insist on would be fresh rosemary and thyme... It really makes the sauce pop! leave the dried stuff in the cabinet.

Fantastic, but I added garlic to the sauce and it was awesome. Thanks for this, my guest compared it to a restaraunt

This was a really super great recipe! Very flavorful! The time suggested was too long and they were more well done than medium rare, but it may have been my oven. Thanks for sharing.
