The Dish: Filet Mignon with Couscous & Baby Vegetables

Ingredients:
1 8 oz. center-cut filet mignon
kosher salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbs. olive oil
6 each baby squash, carrots and turnips
*or other assorted seasonal baby vegetables
2 cups Israeli Couscous
4 cups chicken stock
1 Tbs. butter

Method of Preparation:

- Put olive oil in a hot pan. Salt and pepper both sides of a center cut filet mignon. When the pan smokes, sear the filet about two minutes on each side. Finish in the oven at 400 degrees for ten minutes.

- In a pot of boiling water, blanch baby squash, carrots and turnips. (Or you can use other seasonal baby vegetables.) Blanch for 2-3 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your veggies. Put them in ice water to stop the cooking process- then slice them in half.

- Put butter in a hot pan, and sauté the vegetables for about two minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.

- To make the Israeli Couscous- first toast it in the oven at 350 degrees for three minutes. Boil 4 cups of chicken stock (seasoned as you like it) and add the toasted couscous and cook until tender- about 12-14 minutes.

To Plate:

Chef makes a bed with the couscous, the places the filet on top with the baby veggies all around and garnishes with a dash more chicken stock.

Serving suggestion: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?
