Smothered Filet Mignon on Mid-Week Mixers

Smothered Filet Mignon on Mid-Week MixersHere’s another celebratory dinner, Smothered Filet Mignon, to try for family, friends, or someone special from Mid-Week Mixers.

Naomi says: Every New Years Eve I prepare some type of filet for my family to celebrate the upcoming New Year. I was going to make my standard dish when I found this one. This is a restaurant quality dish that is super easy to prepare at home.

I partnered with my garlic roasted mashed potatoes and just a simple veggie trio. Can’t forget my Drunken Crab Pot for that surf and turf feeling.

So, here we go!

4 (6 ounce) filet mignon steaks
seasoned salt to taste
cracked black pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
