Filet Mignon Crostini
- Filet of Beef – 1.5 lbs works well
- Freshly Ground Pepper
- 1 loaf Italian bread, sliced
- 2 large sweet onions – Sliced
- 1 stick Butter
- Crumbled Blue Cheese
Put butter and onion slices in a large pan, and caramelize on low heat for about 30 minutes. Resist the temptation to stir them! Just flip them once or twice in the process
Drizzle Filet with olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
Sear on a grill or grill pan 2-3 minutes on each side or to your desired doneness (Tip – you can re-grill after slicing for those who like it more well done).
Let the meat rest for 5 minutes, and then slice on an angle in very thin slices.
On another grill pan, grill the bread on both sides until slightly charred. This works well with the sweetness of the onions.
Top each slice of bread with filet, onion and bleu cheese
