Colleen’s Kitchen

After many years of cooking for my family, I’m pleased to say that we have compiled a comprehensive and versatile recipe collection. I love the challenge of pairing different dishes with Goosecross wine, so I have personally tested each recipe to be sure it’s complete. My recipes not overly complicated, seasonally delicious with readily available ingredients, and they won’t leave you with too much clean-up. I sincerely hope you enjoy them.

Fillet Mignon with Herb-Truffle Marinade
Goosecross Cellars Recipe
ÆROS Meritage


4 fillet mignons, 8 ounces each and 1-1/4 inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons truffle oil
1 tablespoon rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon fennel bulb, minced
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a square pyrex dish, whisk the olive oil, truffle oil, rosemary, thyme, mustard, vinegar, fennel, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper. Rub each fillet on all sides with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4-6 hours. Allow the fillets to stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling.

Grill the fillets over direct high heat for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Continue grilling over indirect heat for 3-5 minutes more, or until the internal temperature is 135 degrees for medium-rare. Remove from the grill, let rest 5 minutes, and serve warm.

Great with roasted rosemary fingerling potatoes and a bibb lettuce and cherry tomato salad.

Try this recipe using oak barrel smoking chips or grapevine smoking chips on the barbeque for even more flavor.

Serves 4
