Filet Monica

last weeks food porn featured filet mignon po-boys. well, i had a decent amount of filet left over.

what to do, what to do.

earlier this week i told you about the time i cooked fettucini alfredo.

i was in the mood for pasta with monica sauce. it’s usually served with shrimp. monica sauce is simply alfredo sauce with a little thyme and cayenne pepper. but it’s a simple dish. so i decided to make monica sauce over angel hair pasta topped with the left over bite sized chunks of filet.

let’s do ‘dis lucas. you will need:

1/2 stick of butter

1 cup heavy cream (i went 1:1 butter cream and it was a bit too oily)

1 TBS thyme

1 TBS cayenne

2 TBS seasoning salt (i use tony’s), but season to taste.

1 cup chopped onion, celery, bell pepper (mixed)

1 cup parmesan cheese

2-3 cloves chopped garlic

1 lb shrimp (peeled)

1 lb cooked pasta of your choice

heat butter until melted and add the veggies and cook unitl translucent. add the cream and remaining ingredients. bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes until reduced. if using shrimp (or scallops/crawfish) add it during the last 10 minutes of cooking. pour sauce over the cooked pasta. enjoy. it came out on really well actually considering i was using steak.

c’ese si bon.

filet monica. it was magic

filet monica. it was magic

stay up.

    What are you doing eating on styrofoam and using a plastic fork?

    Where’s the real plates and real utensils?

      I was at work. That’s all we have. Think of it as this blog. The writing sucks, the grammar and punctuation is poor, and I rarely use capitalization.

      However the context is the superstar.
