I don’t know about you, but Filet Mignon is bar none my favorite kind of steak! I have a hard time ordering anything else at a steakhouse. But I especially love it with a blue cheese sauce, and the sauce on this recipe rivals anything I have had at a restaurant. I got my filets at Costco, they are a little spendy but REALLY good quality there! Great for any kind of special occasion. And please PLEASE don’t overcook this steak. You want that pink center, it tastes SOOO much better this way!
Filet Mignon with Melted Blue Cheese and Two Dipping Sauces
4 to 6 filet mignon steaks
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 tablespoons ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
freshly ground black pepper to taste
salt to taste
Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce:
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Let the filets rest out of the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes prior to grilling (helps keep the meat tender...if you apply heat to chilled meat it shocks it & causes it to toughen up).
In the mean time, mix together all the dry rub ingredients. It will make more than you need, you can save the extra mix in the pantry.
When the filets are brought to room temperature, rub the spice mixture generously onto each piece.
Grill over medium heat to desired doneness (again, PLEASE do not over cook, it will taste best with a pink center).
In a saucepan over low heat combine mayonnaise, sour cream and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until smooth and warmed. Remove from heat and stir in the blue cheese crumbles. Serve over your filet mignon or on the side for dipping.
