Recipe
Filet mignon with a medley of sautéed greens and whipped potato, finished with a red wine “force of nature Cabernet” demi sauce

Ingredients:

-Four filet mignon
-1/4 cup + 2 tbsp olive oil
-Salt and pepper
-1 lb. mixed green blend (kale, chard, etc.)
-1 tbsp. minced garlic
-1 tsp. red pepper flakes
-Yukon gold potatoes
-1 cup beef stock
-1 cup Cabernet Sauvignon
