Filet Mignon with Mushroom Gravy

Finally!  A new recipe!  Sorry for slacking on you guys…things have been a little less hectic.  How’s everyone doing with their Paleo living?

Filet Mignon with Mushroom Gravy

  • 2 Filet Mignon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

Mushroom Gravy

  • 2 TBSP grass-fed butter
  • 3/4 C. Chicken Broth 
  • 3 oz. Coconut Milk or Light Cream (if you’re not Paleo)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 C. sliced mushrooms (I used white, but you can use what you prefer)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

I would start with the gravy, depending on how you like your filet mignon cooked.  Melt the butter in a small pot.  Then put the garlic and onion in the pot, along with the chicken broth.  When that comes to a boil, lower the heat and add the coconut milk/light cream.  Stir in the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Cover and let simmer for 5 minutes or so, then add the sliced mushrooms.  Keep covered and let simmer until your steaks are ready.  If you want it a little bit thicker, in a separate bowl, you can add a TBSP of chicken broth to about a teaspoon of tapioca flour, combine well, then add to gravy.

For the filet mignon, melt butter in a hot pan, and heat up your garlic and onions.  Season both sides of the filet mignon with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and thyme.  Place on the hot pan.  I had thick cuts, so I cooked them about 10 minutes on each side on medium high heat.

Coconut and Toasted Almond Asparagus

  • 1 lb. Asparagus 
  • 3 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1/2 C. sliced almonds

Heat up coconut oil in a frying pan with a lid.  When it’s hot, throw in the almonds to toast them for a few minutes.  Then put your asparagus in.  Cover the pan, and let it cook for a few minutes.  When the asparagus starts to soften and brown on one side, flip them over until they brown a little on the other side.

This was delicious, and relatively easy to make.  You can put the gravy on chicken or burgers, too!
