Cherry Tomatoes, String Peas & Roasted Baby Potatoes

Cooking time

35 minutes




710 /serving

When it comes to steak night, nothing beats a classic filet mignon finished with a pat of butter that melts on contact, seeping seductively into the meat. Nothing, that is, until you discover the world of compound butters, specifically this porcini one. If plain butter is indulgent, then this umami-packed, herby mushroom butter is almost sinfully good. Dab a generous portion on your filets mignons, and serve them with roasted baby potatoes and sautéed vegetables—you’ll be putting your local steakhouse to shame.

Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the potatoes lengthwise (quarter if very large). On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the potatoes cook, in a small pot (or kettle), bring 1 cup water to a boil (double for 4 portions). Snap off and discard the stem ends of the snow peas; pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each pod. Halve each pod crosswise. Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Mince the garlic. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discarding the stems, finely chop the leaves. In a bowl, combine the dried porcini mushrooms with the boiling water; let stand for at least 10 minutes. Place 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) in a bowl and leave at room temperature to soften.

Cook the filets mignons
In a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the filets* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add to the pan and cook, 2 to 3 minutes per side, until cooked as desired. Transfer the cooked filets to a plate, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, and let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving. Reserve the pan.

Make the porcini butter
While the filets cook, drain the porcini, reserving the liquid. Pat the mushrooms dry with paper towel and mince. To the bowl of softened butter, add the porcini, a splash of their soaking liquid and ⅓ of the parsley; season generously with S&P.

Cook the vegetables
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the garlic and shallot. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the snow peas, tomatoes and ¼ cup of the remaining porcini soaking liquid (double for 4 portions; discard the remaining). Season with S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, until the peas are crisp-tender and the tomatoes begin to release their juices.

Finish & serve
Divide the vegetables and filets mignons between your plates. Top the filets with a spoonful of the porcini butter. Serve the roasted potatoes on the side and garnish with the remaining parsley. Bon appétit!
