For an amazing Sunday dinner that isn’t a roast chicken this one doesn’t take so long. You’ll want a nice filet mignon. What we’ve got here will do us happily (2 adults / 2 kids) So around 350grammes for the 4 of us.

Ingredients you’ll want.

  • 1 filet mignon 350grammes
  • 1 red onion (or a normal onion / shallots)
  • 3 large carrots
  • 10 mushrooms
  • Whole Grain Mustard
  • Cream (25cl)
  • Some water
  • Potatoes

Filet mignon

You’ll want to brown your meat in some butter. I like to use a pot that will retain the heat and is long enough to hold the meat not to mention can take the rest of the veg and sauce.

Filet mignon in butter

While that’s happening chop 1 red onion (or normal onion .. shallots) quite finely add it get that frying away for a few minutes as well. Chop 2 or 3 decent carrots, quite fine as you’ll want them to cook quite quickly. A handful of mushrooms sliced and chopped roughly.

Also while you’re at it get your spuds peeled. I’m leaving them as chunks and just going to boil them with a sprinkle of salt. People can make a mash with some butter on their own plate or just have them with the mustard sauce.

Peel yours puds

With your filet mignon browned and your onions having cooked for a few minutes we’re going to put everything into the pot (Not the spuds we’ll boil them separately)

Filet mignon and veg

You’ll want to add in the cream and the mustard here. I’m using a 25cl bottle of cream. I’m also going to rinse out the bottle with about half water. I’m adding in about 2 table spoons of mustard. You’ll want to adjust the water and mustard to your own taste. Give it a good stir, get it heated up with the lid on and cook for around 20 to 25 minutes until your carrots are tender.

I forgot to take a final shot of it all dished up! You hopefully get the idea though. Carve up the cooked filet mignon and serve.
