Filet Mignon with Porcini Mushroom Ragu and Grilled Vegetables

Our Valentine's Day dinner.  A filet mignon served  between two heart-shaped puff pastries.  Topped with a porcini mushroom ragu and served atop a bed of arrugula and grilled vegetables.  Been a long time since we have had filet.  Was it worth it?  Not really.  You pay a lot and the meat, while tender, has no flavor of it's own.  A fun, but labor intensive meal.
