After taste testing the individual mustards and sauces Barhyte's Speciality Foods sent me to use for their World Food Championship qualifying recipe contest, I was inspired to make this dish: Creamy Horseradish Filet Mignon with Hot Raspberry Dressed Broccoli Rabe and Sugar Plum Tomato Saute`. A real mouthful for a recipe title and a tasty one to boot!
I was thrilled with the flavors and final result of the recipe however, I made a cardinal error when shooting my photos of the dish. As you may have already noticed, I forgot to place the Saucy Mama products used in the recipe when shooting the completed dish; making the recipe ineligible for the contest.
Feeling deflated and frustrated with myself, I had to consider my options. After all that work, the only way I could use this recipe as an entry in the competition, was to go back to the grocery and buy another set of ingredients, and get them cooked and re-photographed. Ugh! I knew that recreating the dish and setting up to photograph would take another full day away from other recipe creations. The real kicker, and final decision maker was the fact that, filet mignon is NOT cheap! I had to stop right there, I knew this recipe was not the "one" for the competition because, it was so expensive to recreate.
The good news... I'm sharing the recipe because it is freaking delicious! A little more costly than your regular weeknight dinner but perfect for entertaining guests or your special someone.
I'm picturing the Saucy Mama products I used in the recipe with links to their website.
