Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce
June 21, 2007

This was an absolutely stunning recipe! Melt in your mouth delicious filet mignon with a cream sauce worthy of this excellent cut of meat. The crab stuffing was wonderful, not too over powering at all. I noticed a lot of complaints about prep time and had a few suggestions. Start by chopping all the ingredients first (the garlic etc) and have that all laid out and ready to go. For measuring the whiskey, it's convenient to use a medicine measurement. You know, like the ones that come on Pepto Bismol bottles. I measured all tsp and tblsp along with ounces in that one cup and it worked out great. I would definitely start the sauce first. You don't need to mess with it and it can bubble along and reduse itself while you prepare the other parts. Cook the bacon for a couple mins in between paper towels in the microwave to minimize mess and effort. Next and while the bacon cooks, start the stuffing and then get the steaks cooked. Once those are done, your sauce will be ready for the final touches. Working in that order, this recipe took less than 40mins start to finish. 5 Stars and thank you so much for sharing!
