In life, the simplest things are often the best. These caprese grilled filet mignon are the perfect example ! A good piece of well seasoned meat, a melted cheese, an aged balsamic vinegar … Take out the big juice and celebrate life !

Ingredients

  • 4x 200 g beef filet mignon by Maillard
  • Olive oil
  • 200 g fresh Mozzarella di Bufala cheese at room temperature, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • Aged balsamic vinegar
  • 10 fresh basil leaves + some extra leaves
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Salt and pepper from the mill

Preparation

  • Remove beef from the fridge and let it stand for 30 minutes at room temperature. Drizzle a thin stream of olive oil, rub to coat and generously season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Preheat the BBQ at maximum power. Oil the grates.
  • Place the filets on the grates and cook for 2 minutes. Rotate 45 degrees and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Flip the meat and repeat. Cook 2 minutes, rotate 45 degrees and cook for 2 minutes. At this point, your steaks should have a rare doneness. Continue cooking if desired. An internal temperature of 120°F @ 130°F gives a rare doneness and 130°F @ 140°F for medium-rare.
  • Remove the meat from the grates and place on a plate. Cover tightly with foil and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Place the steaks on a presentation plate and add slices of mozzarella cheese. Continue with tomato slices then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste. Season with pepper, sprinkle with sea salt flakes and garnish with some basil leaves!

Dirk Niepoort, is one of Portugal's most inspiring winemakers ! It highlights local grape varieties, which here offers syrah with black olive and pepper flavours. Yum!

IPA AMÉRICAINE DES APPALACHES, PIT CARIBOU, 7%

Fresh and salty, these filet mignon will be marvellously accompanied by this IPA with aromas of citrus and pine that offers a beautiful resinous bitterness. Its coriander aromas will bring even more freshness.
