Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: Filet Mignon Medallions

By Kansas City Steak Company

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. This year, ditch the stuffy brunch and crowded restaurants. What Mom wants more than anything is time with the ones she loves, and not the meal-time responsibility!

We asked our Kansas City Steak Cook Team to give us some Mother’s Day gift meal recipes. Meals easy enough to nail the first time but terrific enough to make Mom feel as special as she is.

Follow Chef Darci Bos’ recipe step by step and Mom will be blown away. Just be sure her wine glass is kept full and her feet are kicked up!

Add all ingredients in bowl of stand mixer. Turn on low until everything is combined. Scrape edges making sure all powdered pudding mix is incorporated.
