Mrbuffer and I wil be off on New Year's Eve and I'm contemplating doing filet mignon, however, I've never prepared it before.
I've been told to sear in an iron skillet on both sides, then finish in a hot oven. I need times, temps and suggestions.
I plan to make pommes frites with fresh thyme on top, and fresh broccoli spears. I was going to do fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter in the iron skillet while letting the meat rest, then deglazing with sherry and reducing.
Appys are shrimp cocktail and bruschetta made with tomato confit, fresh basil and mozzarella.
