Filet Mignon with Horseradish Sauce

Instead of overpaying at a restaurant, try cooking filet mignon yourself.  It is very easy to make well at home.  I like the beef itself to be unadulterated, just salt and pepper for seasoning.  The beef is enhanced by a simple 3 ingrediant horseradish sauce.  I thought the applesauce in the sauce sounded strange too, but its really good, you just have to trust me.  Serve with a baked potato and Oven Roasted Broccoli and you’ll have a fantastic restaurant quality meal for a fraction of the price.

Seared Filet Mignon with Horseradish Sauce

  • 4 to 6 –  1 ½ inch thick filet mignon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Heat oven to 425°F. 

Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat until really really hot (but not smoking).  Season filet on both sides with salt and pepper.   Add oil to pan.  Sear filet on both sides for about 2.5 minutes per side until nicely browned.  Do not crowd the pan.  Do this in 2 batches if necessary.  Remove filets to baking sheet lined with foil.  Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes for medium rare to medium.  Serve with horseradish sauce.

Horseradish Sauce

  • ½ cup well drained prepared horseradish
  • 1 ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • Salt and pepper

Whisk together horseradish, sour cream and applesauce.  Season with salt and pepper.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Makes about 2 cups.
