Feta Cheese and Spinach Filet Mignon

The Best Filet Mignons You’ll Ever Have

Not only am I giving you two steak recipes, I’m also giving you the perfect steak dinner to make for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, I’m giving you the chance to win $300 worth of Snake River Farm‘s amazing filet mignons – 6 of them.  ← This contest is no longer open.

Yes, SIX of them.

These steaks are not ordinary in any way. For you, I made two recipes using these beautiful filets.

These are the most tender steaks I’ve ever had in my life.

Asian Sesame Filet

The first one I made loosely based on the filet I made at World Food Championships where I was a competitor in November.

This recipe is full of Asian flavors; sesame, soy, and apricot ginger mustard from Saucy Mama.

The main difference in this version vs. the steak I made at the competition is that I topped this steak with shredded brussels sprouts as opposed to microgreens.

Both are absolutely, absurdly delicious.

These are not just the regular steaks you would get at your local grocery store – but what you would get if Cupid himself flew to the Heavens just for you and brought them down at room temp so you can go ahead and make them.

If you didn’t already know this, your steaks need to be at room temperature before you cook them. That’s very important.

Now let’s move on to what would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner for your sweetheart. Love comes in all forms, but in my opinion – cooking for someone that you’re smitten with is very sexy.

Love is patient.

Love is kind.

Love knows how to make the perfect damn steak because, well let’s be honest, nobody wants to be taken to Outback for Valentine’s Day.

Feta Cheese and Spinach Filet Mignon

I don’t even know how to describe to you how unbashedly delicious this is.

See those potatoes behind it? After tasting the steak I don’t even think they mattered for a few moments….but I will address them below, I promise.                                                                   

You could literally cut this steak with a damn fork.

Spinach Feta Filet

Love is also this pinked-ness in the middle.

Feta Spinach Steak

I topped this filet with spinach, lemon, oregano, salt and pepper, a little whole cream and – at the end – feta cheese.

Yes, feta.

Fresh feta.

Spinach and Feta Filet

The potatoes are wedges that I fried and drizzled with a balsamic honey reduction.

Just melt a tablespoon of butter over medium heat, add 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp of honey and whisk until reduced by about 1/4, remove from heat and pour over potato wedges.

They’re pretty fantastic.
