This Fillet mignon with a gratin of mushrooms is a take-off of a Gordon Ramsay YouTube video. He does not provide the actual recipe, you watch the video and create the amounts and directions on how to make it from what you see. Our recipe is the result of numerous attempts to hone the quantities of the individual ingredients and the method of creating the dish.
This recipe is for two, we have often doubled it when we serve it to guests.
Note: The Fillet mignon with the gratin of mushrooms in the picture is shown on a bed of Potatoes Earl.
* After the stems are removed you will have approximately half of the weight of mushrooms that you started out with. Don't throw the mushroom stems away! You can use them to make a mushroom stock, or put them in soups or stews.
