2 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil

4 (5-oz) beef tenderloin filet mignons (1½ inch thick)
Hy-Vee kosher sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Things To Grab

  • Large cast-iron skillet


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat butter, oil, 4 sprigs thyme and garlic in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Add steaks to skillet and sear for 4 minutes or until browned on each side, turning once. Transfer steaks to a platter and set aside.

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    A hot oiled skillet—or better yet, a hot cast iron—makes a dramatic sizzling sound when searing steak. For the most flavor, sear for 4 to 5 minutes on both sides to get a nice caramelized crust.

  2. Add onion to the same skillet and cook for 2 minutes or until tender. Add mushrooms; cook and stir for 5 minutes or until softened. Add red wine and broth; simmer until mixture is reduced by half. Stir in whipping cream and mustard. Return steaks to the skillet.

  3. Place skillet in the oven and cook until steaks reach desired doneness, about 5 minutes for medium (140°F).

  4. Serve steaks with sauce and, if desired, garnish with fresh thyme.
