Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese

My husband and myself are big fans of blue cheese, so I wanted a recipe that would combine my favorite cut of beef with the salty richness of this cheese. I found this recipe but edited out the marinade of balsamic vinegar, as far as I am concerned there is no need to marinade filet Mignon!


2-3 extra lean filet Mignon steaks (about 16 ounces), trimmed completely of any visible fat
salt and pepper to season

Cheese mixture:
1 tablespoon light butter substitute or use whipped butter
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese, 
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
Dash black pepper
1 tablespoon toasted walnut or pecan pieces


1.Season filets with salt and pepper and set aside.

2. Add margarine or whipped butter, blue cheese, minced garlic, dried basil, black pepper, and walnuts to a small bowl and blend well witha fork and set aside.

3. Broil filets on a foil-lined baking dish, about 6-inches from the heat or flame, for about 4-8 minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the filets).

4. Remove filets from the oven and distribute the cheese mixture over the top
of the filets. Return to broiler for about 30-45 seconds. (It's also o.k. to place the blue cheese mixture in the microwave and heat for 30 second before pouring it in the filets)
