Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 small shallot, minced

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

  • Three 10-ounce packages thawed frozen chopped 
spinach, excess 
water squeezed out

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano 

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper

  • One 3-pound center-cut filet mignon, butterflied 
1/4 inch thick (have your butcher do this)

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shallot and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. 
Add the flour and cook, stirring, until the flour is golden, about 
3 minutes. Whisk in the cream until smooth, then add the spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is very thick, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese, nutmeg and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.


  2. Preheat the oven to 450°. Set a rack over a large rimmed 
baking sheet. Arrange the filet on the rack and season the 
top with salt and pepper. Spread the creamed spinach evenly over the filet, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Roll up the filet and tie with kitchen twine at 1-inch intervals. Rub the filet with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until medium-rare within and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 120°. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice 1/2 inch thick and serve warm.

Make Ahead

The creamed spinach can be refrigerated for 2 days; bring to room temperature before using.
