We had an absolute feast with some friends featuring grilled filet mignon with sauteed mushrooms and onions, spicy red pepper mac n cheese, rosemary and garlic mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach. The Strip District struck again! I had wanted to get a log of filet for quite some time because the price goes down as you buy a bigger cut, so we called on some friends to help us out.
I got about a 4 lb cut of filet at Wholey’s for $9.99 lb and sliced it into 8 steaks that were a healthy inch thick.
Grilled them up and topped them with sauteed mushrooms and onions. Called on the charcoal on a very warm nearing the end of season night.
We called on some great traditional sides that we have made in the past. First creamed spinach that started out with this $3 pillow of spinach.
Really though, why is spinach so expensive in the grocery store? A bag a quarter of this size was $4.99 at the grocery store.
We also made spicy mac n cheese, but I substituted 3 or 4 red jalapenos for the hot sauce. They ended up being really spicy, but is better than the hot sauce which can be too salty in the end.
I also made garlic rosemary redskin mashed potatoes and we had an absolute feast! We even had leftover filet which will be another great dinner another night.
