Marinated Steak Recipe

St. Valentine's Filet Mignon

Now that you know the technique to making perfect steak, here's a delicious-sounding recipe for marinated filet mignon. It comes from reader Aimee3242; she shared it in the Kitchen Goddess group in the YumSugar Community.

I cooked dinner for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day.  I marinated the meat overnight, and it tasted delicious, sweet, salty, tangy, with little citrus hints.  Let the meat rest for a few minutes before serving; it will let the juices redistribute and ensure that your steak is juicy.

Marinated Filet Mignon:


 2 Filet Mignons

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup dry white wine

Splash of Tabasco

Zest and juice of 1 orange

Zest and juice of 1 lime

2 garlic cloves, smashed

1 shallot, roughly chopped

1 knob of ginger, roughly chopped

1/2 jalapeño, roughly chopped

1 scallion, roughly chopped

1 tsp. cracked black pepper

Bunch of cilantro or parsley

1 tsp. - 1 tbsp, canola oil

Put all ingredients (minus the oil) in a zip lock bag and marinate for a few hours, or overnight.  Let it come to room temperature when ready to cook.

Preheat oven to 375 F.  Heat a pan to medium high, add oil.  When the oil is hot, sear the meat on both sides for about 4 minutes.  Pop in the oven for 5-10 min.  Take out when medium rare.  Serve with a baked potato and some vegetables.
