Let’s end the New Year and Decade right! “Here’s How to Prepare a Perfectly Cooked Prime Filet Mignon”.  A perfect repast for your significant other or to share with family and friends. In this segment I will share my secret to perfectly cooked steak that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning palettes. Simply delicious and mouthwatering good! This makes for a wonderful way to enjoy dinner with your favorite sides and accoutrements. Bon Appetit!! #ChefWW

  • 2 or more 8oz Center cut Prime Filet Mignons from your fine butcher (Wegmans or your preferred source)
  • Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Canola oil for searing
  • Butter for searing and “finishing”
  • Delicious Madeira and Truffle infused sauce (Just a nap to accompany to accent the steak) Or your favorite sauce!
  • Wild Mushroom Medley (Optional and Yes a wonderful seasonal accompaniment)

I will explain carefully and through demonstration how to properly cook your steaks like a Pro Chef. I will also explain the preparation involved in the Madeira Sauce with Winter Truffles. This is how I serve the Filet Mignon at the Historic McFarland House that is so well received. We love Mushrooms and in this medley, I have Roasted Shitake, Oyster, and Hen of the Woods Mushrooms that are accented with a mince of shallot and garlic, all with sea salt. A wonderful way to present your steak unlike any other you’ve had before and well worth the effort. Cheers! Chef WW
