I know, filet mignon is expensive, and that’s not what we do here. It’s true that most of our recipes are for the cost-conscious new cook, but everyone deserves a splurge every once in a while, right? You don’t need to buy a large piece of filet mignon since it is so rich and delicious. A 4 to 6-ounce steak will do. Save this recipe for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, birthdays, and other holidays.
You’ll also see that the recipe calls for fresh sage. Although sage did not make our original cut of the top twenty herbs and spices for the Finite Foodie’s pantry, we have a sage plant in our herb garden that provides us with aromatic leaves for dishes such as this. If you don’t have a sage plant in your garden, no worries! The fresh herb is typically available in the produce section of most grocery stores. You can always dry the remaining leaves for use later, or make a tea with them. Just add some honey and lemon, and you’ll have a warming and delicious drink that will help lower fevers and relieve other cold and flu symptoms.
