This is my recipe and it was changed by Allrecipes after submission. You need to use course ground dijon mustard. I have never tried regular dijon so I don't know how well that would go. Also, just heat up the grill, don't worry about one side being high and the other medium. I never submitted that. This is one of those recipes that you can just eyeball how much blue cheese and onions you want on each filet.
I rarely cook, but when I do I go out to make a great impression. I decided to use this recipe as a "makeup" dinner after an argument with my long-term girlfriend. Was it a hit? It was a home run, touch down, goal and swoosh all in one. I have often spent well over $100.00 for meals that couldn't touch this one with a ten foot pole. Five stars is not enough!!! I served this with green beans with onions, mushrooms and a light cream sauce and a fully loaded baked potato.
This filet mignon recipe is an elegant and quick romantic dinner for two, seasoned with vinegar, wine, salt and pepper.
