Red Wine Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons butter , divided
  • 1/2 yellow onion , diced
  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup beef broth

Filet Mignon:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 beef tenderloin , filet mignon steaks, (~8 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. In a large skillet add 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, onion, and garlic on medium heat.
  3. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until translucent.

  4. Whisk in salt, oregano, black pepper, and tomato paste and cook for 30 seconds.

  5. Add in wine and beef broth and bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce is reduced by half.

  6. Turn off heat, strain the sauce to a fine-mesh strainer and add it back to a clean saucepan.
  7. Add in remaining 2 tablespoons butter and whisk until smooth (cover to keep warm, but do not cook on high heat or sauce will over-reduce).
  8. Add remaining 2 tablespoons unsalted butter to a now cleaned skillet (just bigger than your steaks) on high heat.
  9. Season steaks all over with salt and pepper.
  10. Sear the steaks on each side for 3 minutes until browned.

  11. Place in the oven for 4 minutes (for rare, 5-6 for medium or more for well done).

  12. Let rest for 10 minutes, covered with a sheet of foil, before serving with red wine sauce.
