    If your Valentine likes beef, then these juicy steaks with amazing vermouth mushrooms are sure to be a huge hit. Juicy filet mignon and vermouth mushrooms make a great Valentine's Day treat.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
    • 2 1½ inch-thick filet mignon steaks, 6 to 8 ounces each
    • 4 cups sliced mixed mushrooms, wild, brown and/or white
    • 1 large shallot, minced
    • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
    • ¼ cup sweet white vermouth
    • ¾ cup beef broth
    • ½ teaspoon corn starch
    • ½ teaspoons each kosher salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 sliced scallions, white and green parts separated
    • ½ stick butter
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon

    Directions:
    Generously season the filets with salt and pepper, approximately 1 teaspoon of salt per side.

    Heat oven to 400F.

    Heat the ½ stick butter and the vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet to a high temperature.

    Sear the filets in the hot pan for about 2-3 minutes per side or until a nice brown crust forms.

    Keep spooning the residual butter in the pan on top of the meat while the steaks are searing.

    Once both sides are seared, carefully place the entire skillet with steak in the center of the hot oven for about 6-8 minutes, depending upon thickness.

    In the last minute of cooking, place a slice of compound butter on top of the steaks.

    Remove done steaks to a plate to rest 5 minutes or so.

    Place skillet over medium-high heat.

    Add shallot and thyme to the skillet, and cook, stirring until the shallot is browned, about 30 seconds.

    Add vermouth and let simmer until almost reduced by one half.

    Stir the cornstarch into the broth and add to the skillet.

    Bring to a simmer and stir until slightly thickened and reduced to about ½ cup.

    Remove from the heat.

    Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

    Add scallion whites, mushrooms and salt, and cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are browning and the juices evaporate, 6 to 8 minutes.

    Stir in scallion greens and tarragon and remove from the heat.

    Serve steaks with the vermouth sauce and mushrooms.

    This recipe comes to us from Kimberly Dungan.
    This is using an 8x8 casserole dish: Just add the appropriate amounts to all the ingredients to make a larger dish. Fill your casserole dish with potatoes (line them up to fill it so you know how many to use). Peel and boil the potatoes (cutting them into small chunks will allow faster cooking). Drain the potatoes and put them onto a cookie sheet Bake for ten minutes (not any more ­ they will get a hard crust otherwise) in a 375 degree oven. After taking them out of the oven, put into a large mixing bowl, set aside.
    Chop ½ onion and 3 slices of Fat Free Jennie-O Turkey bacon (or regular bacon) into small pieces. Sprinkle garlic (to taste ­ about 1 tbsp), 2 tbsp. of cumin over onion and bacon and sauté for 1-2 minutes on high in a tbsp. of olive oil. Remove from heat and add 1-2 tbsp. of butter to melt over top.
    Mash the potatoes with ¼-½ cup of plain rice milk and 3 slices of Veggie Slices pepper jack cheese. Add 2 tbsp. Dijon Mustard Add the onion mixture. Mash together Put into casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes (same 375F degree oven).
    If you make a double recipe or have extra, add egg to mixture, make into patties and fry in olive oil until crisp edges for breakfast! Options: Use ¼ cup cream instead of rice milk and cheese Use Anaheim roasted peppers and Chipotle peppers (a smoky mix of sauce and peppers) instead of bacon (this is quite hot) Or, use squash instead of peppers. Also, could make with skin-on potatoes.
    Breakfast options: Instead of egg, make into patties and coat with white rice flour, fry in olive oil

    5 pounds corned brisket of beef
    6 peppercorns, or gluten-free packaged pickling spices
    3 carrots, peeled and quartered
    3 onions, peeled and quartered
    1 medium-sized green cabbage, quartered or cut in wedges
    Melted butter (about 4 tablespoons)
    Place the corned beef in water to cover with the peppercorns or mixed pickling spices (in supermarkets, these often come packaged with the corned beef). Cover the pot or kettle, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 hours or until tender, skimming occasionally. During the last hour, add the carrots and onions and cover again. During the last 15 minutes, add the cabbage. Transfer meat and vegetables to a platter and brush the vegetables with the melted butter. Serve with boiled parsley potatoes, cooked separately. (The stock can be saved to add to a pot roast or stew instead of other liquid.)
    Serves 6, with meat left over for additional meals.
