Made the sauce with merlot because I didn't have any shiraz and added fresh, sliced mushrooms. It was amazing. All our guests commented on how great it was. And SUPER SIMPLE.

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!

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!

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 :-).

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.
