“Grilled Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola and Baby Bella Mushrooms”

This is a recipe for cooking a Grilled Filet Mignon steak. I’ve included a delicious topping of Baby Bella mushrooms, garlic, butter, truffle salt, and gorgonzola cheese to give a gourmet approach to grilling. The pairing suggestions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, or red blends complement the rich flavors of the beef and the umami from the mushrooms, and don’t forget a nice glass while grilling to enjoy during the cooking process. We did a nice Stoller “Helen’s Legacy” Pinot Noir From Willamette Valley for this cook. Here’s a streamlined version of the preparation steps:


– 1 Filet Mignon Steak per person (I suggest Costco, they usually have 4 packs, but the steaks are beautiful and come in various sizes)

– Seasoning (e.g., Omaha Steak Private Reserve Rub, For a low sodium option try Dak’s Steak Seasoning found on Amazon)

– Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced

– Butter

– Garlic, minced

– Truffle Salt

– Gorgonzola Cheese


– Pig’s Tail (or tongs) for flipping the steak

Preparation Steps

  1. Season the Steak: Rub the seasoning generously over both sides of the Filet Mignon. Let it sit for 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Prepare the Mushrooms: If not pre-sliced, slice the mushrooms. Place them in a pie tin with butter, minced garlic, and a sprinkle of truffle salt.
  3. Cook the Mushrooms: Place the tin on a medium-heat area of the grill, stirring occasionally.
  4. Sear the Steak: Sear both sides of the steak on a high-heat area of the grill, then move to a medium-heat area to continue cooking.
  5. Grill to Desired Doneness: Cook each side for 5 minutes depending on the thickness of the cut, you can use a MEATER probe for the thick ones.
  6. Reverse Sear Option: For a reverse sear, start on the medium heat side, then sear on high heat for the last minute on each side.
  7. Add Toppings: Top the steaks with the cooked mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese before serving.

I usually suggest the finger test to check doneness but it doesn’t work as well on filets since they are so tender.

Remember, each grill is different, and hands too for that matter, so keep an eye out for flare-ups and adjust cooking times as necessary. Enjoy your cooking and the wonderful steak dinner!
