Ingredients

  • 2 fillet mignons
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon raz al hanout
  • 2 medallions goose or duck liver, sliced 1 inch thick
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 pieces precooked polenta, sliced about 1 inch thick
  • 1 teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon pregelatinized or instant flour, such as Wondra
  • Finishing salt, such as fleur de sel, to garnish
  • Fresh black truffle, to garnish

Instructions

  • Remove the fillet mignons from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature.
  • Combine the heavy whipping cream, salt, and raz al hanout and whisk until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • Place a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Place the livers in the pan and sear until deeply golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a small baking sheet lined with a cooling rack.
  • Season the fillet mignon with salt and pepper. Sear to medium rare, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to the lined baking sheet. Add the polenta to the pan and sear until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Reserve with the livers and steaks.
  • Add the peppercorns and toast, stirring frequently, until very fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the red wine and carefully ignite to burn off the alcohol. After the flames subside, simmer the wine mixture to reduce slightly, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the flour to the wine mixture and stir to combine. Simmer to thicken, about 2 additional minutes, and season with salt.
  • To serve, spoon the pan sauce onto a plate, then place the steak, followed by the polenta and liver. Garnish with the savory whipped cream, finishing salt, and shaved black truffle.
