Because being healthy pays off when you're old while eating delicious food pays off RIGHT NOW!

per person:
1 filet mignon, 1 inch thick
5 cremini mushrooms, chopped finely
1 small shallot, diced
olive oil
salt & freshly ground pepper
10 sheets of phyllo dough

Preheat oven to 450F and make sure phyllo dough is defrosted if you are buying it. see below.

Make a duxelle: fry shallot until golden in some butter and olive oil. Then add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes until they are sufficiently shriveled. Chill.

Cook steaks for 3 minutes over medium high heat, turning once. Set aside and cool for a few minutes.

Remove phyllo dough (if you buy frozen, remember it takes a few hours to defrost it. The defrost time can be shortened considerably if it is wrapped tightly in air tight plastic (aka ziplock) and submerged in room temperature water for 1 hour). Coat each layer with melted butter or olive oil (or pam if you are really lazy).

Put steak on phyllo dough. Put duxelle on steak. Wrap dough, coat outside in oil, or egg wash. Then bake at 450 for 9-10 minutes.

Serves X.
