Filet Mignon With Bacon Sauce |


I’m a big fan of Filet Mignon also known as  Filet Pur here in Belgium. Might be my favourite meat cut  because I like the mild taste, the fact it’s a lean meat and the ease to cook. So for this Sunday lunch I was looking for a sauce to go with my Mignon Steaks , then decided to give the Bacon Sauce a shot, and let me tell you: This is exactly what I was looking for on this cloudy, lazy day. Some tasty, filling comfort food. So this is what you’ll need to cook this for your next meal.

Ingredients for the Steaks

  • 2 (220gr) filet mignon steaks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter

Ingredients for the sauce

  • 1 shallot diced
  • 3 slices of bacon minced 
  • 200ml of light cream (20%)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper



  1.   Remove steaks from refrigerator at least 40 minutes before cooking.
  2. Pat steaks dry with paper towels.Heat oil in a large stainless steel or cast iron skillet over high heat until it almost starts smoking. Add steaks to pan, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from pan and tent loosely with foil.

    For the Sauce

    1. While the steaks are resting, prepare the sauce: cook and stir the chopped bacon in a small saucepan over medium heat until the bacon pieces are crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the butter and shallots, and cook and stir until the shallots are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the light cream, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve over the steaks.


    Voilà , all you need now is a side dish. I baked some potatoes with butter, garlic and rosemary for this one!
