Filet mignon flambéed with Armagnac

Recipe: Filet mignon flambéed with Armagnac


Filet mignon recipe flambéed with armagnac, a great recipe for the end of the year celebrations. The cooking time was perfect, the tenderloins were pink. I particularly like working with pork tenderloins, they are calibrated and allow you to make well-controlled portions. The pork, with controlled cooking, remains very soft and tasty. Here the peppers have deliciously flavored the filet mignon with Armagnac, the alcohol has divinely given a particular taste to the meat. Be careful with the chili, use in small doses, because it will take over very quickly. I love it, but children quickly make faces. A good red to accompany this filet mignon with Armagnac. I chose a Saint Joseph from the Rhône valley.
