How to make it

  • Leave Filets out on the counter to come to room temperature while you make the Marmalade
  • *************************
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat melt the butter in the oil
  • Add the onion and cook until caramelized (about 25 minutes)
  • Add garlic and stir for a minute
  • Add port and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring
  • Add remaining ingredients and reduce the liquid to a marmalade consistency (it will thicken some on cooling)
  • Remove from heat, and let stand until cool to room temperature
  • *************************
  • Once the Marmalade is done and cooling, rub both sides of the filet with the garlic cloves
  • Salt lightly and pepper heavily
  • Cook the filet either on the grill or in a cast iron skillet to desired temp (nothing over medium please)
  • 145 degrees for medium rare
  • 160 degrees for medium
  • TIP: Remove steaks from heat 5-10 degrees short of your desired temp
  • Place filets on a plate and cover with foil, let stand 10 minutes before assembling plate
  • Slice the block of blue cheese into four equal slabs
  • On dinner plate, place a bed of the Red Onion Marmalade, place a filet on Marmalade
  • Drizzle with any dripping from the plate on which the filets rested
  • Top with a slab of the blue cheese and let stand a minute or two until the cheese softens

    Those onions are devastingly good. They would make shoe leather taste great, but combined with steak and blue!!! it is sublime.

    luisascatering ate it and said... I do a Beef Crostini with Caramelized Onion Marmalade that is very similar to this; it's a great flavor combination for sure. I love the addition of blue cheese on yours. Thanks for a great post! Come check out some of my filet mignon recipes ;-)

    This is a fabulous recipe. I found the marmalade recipe on this site (courtesy of scearly) and demanded HOTPAD make it for me as he had it at a local restaurant and only shared ONE BITE with me. Several friends requested it for their birthday dinner.
