Filet Mignon in a Port Cherry Reduction Sauce

Another Cook's Illustrated Classic, preparing this Pepper-Crusted Filet is easy and well worth the steps. Poor a glass of sparkling water or red wine and enjoy the process. To accompany each 7-oz center-cut filet is a lovely Port Wine Sour Cherry Reduction Sauce. For Port-less' birthday celebration, The Red Queen paired the 1-1/2" thick filets with Sweet Potato Gnocchi in a mushroom sauce, topped with chopped goat cheese tossed with parmesan, fresh cracked black pepper, and toasted pine nuts.
