Organic Grass-fed Filet Mignon with Creamy Peppercorn Sauce

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 2 servings


  • 2 tablespoon organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (4 to 6 ounces each)
  • Dash kosher salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon (good quality brandy)
  • 2 small cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon assorted multicolored peppercorns (crushed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice (or 2 baked potatoes)
  • Garnish: parsley (chopped, fresh)(If you like, you can cook some Organic Capellini pasta for serving under Chicken marsala)


  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over high heat until hot. Sprinkle tenderloin steaks with kosher salt and pepper. Sear the steaks on both sides in the skillet.
  • Remove from the skillet, and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until the meat thermometer registers 125 °F for rare or 135 °F for medium-rare (145 °F for medium).
  • Add bourbon to drippings in skillet; bring to a boil over medium heat, and deglaze the pan, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add minced garlic, peppercorns, basil, oregano, and salt; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add whipping cream; bring to a boil.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, for 6 to 7 minutes or until sauce is reduced by half; remove from the heat. Whisk in sour cream. Sour cream completes the combination of flavors.
  • Spoon the sauce over steaks and garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired
  • Serve with hot cooked basil rice or nice big baked potato and buttered broccolini or grilled vegetables go great, too.
