Filet Mignon with Roquefort Sauce

recipes with olive oil

  • 4 Filet Mignon steaks
  • 4 strips of thick cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon New Canaan Olive Oil (suggestions below)
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 oz. Roquefort cheese (broken up)
  • Salt and pepper as desired
Directions for meat:
Pre-heat grill. Wrap each filet in a strip of bacon. Cook to desired temperature and allow steak to rest for 10 minutes.
Directions for sauce:
In a medium sauce pan melt the butter and New Canaan Olive Oil (suggestions below) until an amber brown. Add brandy (be careful, may splatter) and cook off the alcohol. Add cream and bring to a soft boil, stir sauce until thick.* Add Roquefort and stir until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
*tip: if sauce sticks to the back of a spoon it's thick enough
New Canaan Olive Oil suggestions:
For a traditional Roquefort sauce use any of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils.
For a bolder, more peppery Roquefort sauce we suggest our Shallot Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
