Steak De Burgo

People are passionate about their DeBurgo sauce, and rightfully so. This tasty dish was created right here in Iowa, and has been made by many chefs and savored by many patrons over the past 60 years. Recipes differ, but we think this version is quite good and easy to prepare at home.


2 tablespoons butter • 2- 8 oz Rube's Filet Mignon (or your favorite cut) • 1/4 cup white wine • 2 teaspoons garlic paste • 1/2 teaspoons each basil, thyme, oregano, sea salt • 1 cup cream • 1 tablespoons butter


In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add steaks. Brown on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes. Transfer steaks to baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes for medium rare. Save skillet and juices for the sauce. While the steaks cook, deglaze the skillet with wine, stirring frequently. Mix in all seasonings, allow to cook for 5 minutes. Add cream and stir often while sauce thickens and reduces. When sauce is reduced, stir in butter until melted. Spoon over steaks and serve.
