Filet Mignon with Herb-and-Cheese Potatoes

When a meal calls for some sophistication, try our take on steak frites, a classic bistro offering. The tender filet Mignon has plenty of panache but is uncomplicated to prepare and the thinly sliced potatoes, coated with a Latin-influenced combination of cotija cheese, cayenne, and cilantro are an interesting side.

    This was just okay. Nothing spectacular. Probably wouldn't make it again. The cilantro butter was pretty good though.

    How big should the filets be? They are not listed in the recipe so the cooking time would depend on how big each filet is, no?

    The filet mignon took much less time to cook - about 10 mins or less total. The potatoes - a lot like french fries - were really tasty. The herb butter was fabulous on top of the steak! Overall, it was really good, but I would recommend really watching the steaks and not letting them overcook. First time I'd ever made filet mignon and it tasted excellent - so tender!

    The potatoes are excellent!!! So easy to do and yummy. Looking for something different to do with potatoes this is for you.

    The potatoes were delicious! They were a bit hot, but I can fix that with less pepper. The steaks were a major failure! I am not really sure what went wrong as I followed the directions to a T. I will have to try them agian.

    I didn't make the potatos, but I had some filet mignon and I cooked it according to the recipe, and it turned out great! I would love to try it with the potatos next time. I bet they're good!
