Filet mignon with wild garlic

Garlic Filet Mignon Recipe

I am in the Doubs with my friends Florence and Yves, and as usual, Yves works in his store to clear up the sight of all his customers and we take care of preparing the feasts in order to restore our lord when he returns from his professional occupations. What’s great about my friend is that she’s like me, always ready, for a new dining experience. Here is the birth of our Filet mignon with wild garlic. Of course, everyone has their own knowledge above the black casserole dish, but it is always Florence who has the last word (well… after all… she is also at home). But I rebel when she wants to confine me to photos… No, but! As you can see, we took great pleasure in making this Filet mignon with bear garlic. I really liked the sauce of this Filet mignon with wild garlic, slightly flavored with barely lemony wild garlic, then comes the scent of alcohol. This is almost a Franc-Comtois dish, the pork was from the region with wild garlic and of course the Pontarlier anise which is the pride of Haut Doubs.
