  • salt (divided use)
    1/2 tsp
  • black pepper (1/8-1/4, coarsely ground)
    1/8 tsp
  • filet mignon steaks ((or beef tenderloin), 5 oz each, about 3/4 inch thick trimmed of fat)
  • coffee (or 1/2 cup water and 1 Tsp. instant coffee granules)
    1/2 cup
  • bourbon
    2 tbsp
  • Worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp


  1. Sprinkle 1/4 Tsp. salt and black pepper evenly over both sides of the beef and let stand 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

  2. Meanwhile, stir the coffee, bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 Tsp. salt together in a small bowl.

  3. Place a large nonstick skillet over high heat until hot. Coat the skillet with nonstick cooking spray, add the steaks and cook 3 minutes on each side.

  4. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook the steaks 2-6 minutes longer or until they are done as desired. Place them on individual dinner plates in the oven.

  5. Add the coffee mixture to the skillet, bring to a boil over high heat, and boil 2 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to 2 Tbsps. Spoon the sauce evenly over beef and serve immediately.

  6. Cook’s Tip: There’s no need to heat the water before combining it with the instant coffee granules. The granules dissolve just fine in cold water.
