Filets Mignons with Mushroom Sauce

6 tbsp. butter, cut into small pieces
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
4  8-oz. filets mignons
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 lb. cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 cup red wine

Heat oven to 500°. Heat 1 tbsp. butter and 1 tbsp. oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season filets with salt and pepper; sear, flipping once, until browned, 4–5 minutes.

Who does not love a filet! This looks fabulous. This is what I make my husband when I want some new jewelry or furniture or a Viking range!

That looks HEAVENLY Teresa!! I may get ambitious and make that for the family tomorrow...something I know they would all love. Just add yummy mashed potatos, crusty bread and a vegetable and I think that might be the perfect meal! Enjoy your weekend!!
