Now, let’s try on the shish kabobs for the Mediterranean take on filet mignon. Make sure you get your kabob skewers ready for this. Trim all white membrane and fat from the filet mignon. Since grilling filet mignon is easier when it sliced into pieces, we suggest that you opt for the thinnest blade in your knife set for precision slicing.

Dice shallot, tie the thyme together, chop parsley, chiffonade cut the basil leaves, and break open the heads of garlic. Set aside. Place the mustard, red wine, and olive oil in a small bowl and whisk it altogether using until it thickens. Once the mixture is thick enough, add in the garlic, herbs, kosher salt, and red pepper flakes. Add the freshly ground pepper last and stir. Add filet mignon chunks. Cover the bowl. Allow meat to marinate overnight, turn the chunks occasionally.

Chop the red onion, green, red, and yellow bell peppers into chunks. Heat the grill to 450°F. Skewer the meat and the bite sized vegetables and season with freshly ground black pepper. Grill each side for 2-3 minutes (well done) or 1-2 minutes (rare).

Place the marinade into a small sauce pan and cook down by half. Remove garlic cloves and thyme. Arrange the filet mignon kabobs on a plate and gently pour over the marinade. Serve hot. Recipe from Kevin is Cooking.

Prepare knife block again because this recipe will require lots of slicing! Slice baguettes, then brush pieces with olive oil and season with Kosher salt. Toast in an oven at 350°F. After toasting, top the slices with a spoonful of Romesco sauce and top off with crumbled goat cheese. Using the most precise knife from your set, create thin slices of filet mignon and place about 1-2 slices on each baguette. Finish off with chopped parsley and few crispy shallots. Serve and enjoy!

So you see, there is no filet mignon recipe that is too fancy when you have the appropriate knives, the perfect ingredients, and the right amount of research!
