    Title: Empty Nest Filets
    Categories: Beef, Mushrooms, Booze
    Yield: 2 Servings

    2 Filets mignon
    1/2 lb Cremini mushrooms; sliced
    1 Shallot; minced
    2 tb Butter
    Fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 c Brandy

    Place a heavy frying pan over medium heat and let it heat
    up. Add the butter and tip the pan so the butter sizzles
    but doesn't burn. Add the shallot and cook briefly until
    it softens, then add the mushrooms and cook until they're
    just short of done.

    Using a slotted spoon, remove the mushrooms from the pan,
    leaving the butter and mushroom juice. Turn the heat to
    high. Add the steaks and sear on both sides. (This recipe
    will produce rare to medium-rare steaks; if you or your
    date likes - shudder - well-done beef, you can butterfly
    that steak, put it in the pan first, and cook it with a
    cover on until it's done through before you add the good

    Remove the steaks from the pan. Add the brandy and a lot
    of black pepper, and cook down until it's syrupy.

    Put the steaks and the mushrooms back in the pan and let
    them all cook together for a few minutes, until the steaks
    are done to your liking and hot through, and the flavors
    have all blended.
