Serves 2-4



  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup cream
  • Salt and pepper for flavor
  • 4 oz mixed mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley


  • 2x filet mignons
  • Salt and pepper for flavor


  1. Heat butter in pan over medium heat and let simmer. When melted, add finely sliced shallots and cook for 5 minutes until soft and golden.

  2. Add garlic to shallots mixture and let cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then, add white wine to pan and let cook. Reduce heat by half, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add cream to pan slowly,  while still stirring. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Allow Cinder to reach desired heat; 129 °F recommended for rare steak. Season filet mignons with salt and pepper and wait for cooking to be done. Remove from Cinder when notified.

  5. Prepare the device for searing by wiping down the plate and set to sear. Wait for Cinder to reach sear temperature.

  6. Spread oil on plates and spread mixed mushrooms on Cinder and sear for 45 seconds. Add mushrooms to sauce, stir, and add in chopped parsley. Set aside.

  7. Sear steaks for 90 seconds, then remove from Cinder. Plate with sauce and enjoy.
