Spread dried porcini mushrooms on a cookie sheet and dry further in a 250-degree oven for about 15 minutes or until brittle. Allow to cool and pulverize to a fine powder in a blender. Set aside. 

How to Cook: 


Add the garlic, bay leaves, and tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring. Add the balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar and wine bring to a boil, and simmer until reduced by two-thirds. Add the veal or chicken stock, bring to a boil, and simmer, skimming occasionally, until reduced by two-thirds. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Cool and refrigerate if not using immediately.

Return the sauce to the heat and simmer until it lightly coats the back of a spoon. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.

Light the grill and let the coals cook down to a medium-hot fire. Season the beef fillets liberally with cornish sea salt and grill to the desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove to a rack and keep warm while sides are dished. Pour any juices from the beef fillets into the sauce and spoon the sauce over and around the steaks. Sprinkle with chive batons and serve immediately.  

In a heavy-bottomed pot, cook the onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil over medium heat until well browned.  

Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Remove from refrigeration 1 hour before cooking and wipe excess marinade off the steaks.

Sauce preparation:

Coat the Beef Fillets with the marinade combining the balsamic vinegar, garlic, rosemay and olive oil and black peppercorns. 

For the Sauce

The red wine sauce is flavoured with vegetables for a perfect accompaniment to herbed and spiced tender filet mignon steaks. Serve this restaurant-quality dish to special guests or for important occasions. Do not let the long ingredient list dismay you. It's not that difficult to make.

For the Marinade

A robust and fruity vinegar made from the choicest vineyards. Before bottling the vinegar, the harvested grapes are fermented and aged in oak barrels to develop rich character and flavor, like that of a California wine. A lucious pairing with our selection of oils.
