This topping happen out of necessity to make room in the fridge.  I love Inglehoffer's wasabi horseradish but I rarely use it.  I also had to fillets I picked up from the butcher. I  had no reason to purchase them but I wanted to make sure the butcher remembered my face; so I can get the cuts of meats I like when I like them.  So I decided to make a fancy dinner for two.  Two as in me and my dog, Tippy.  (Zo you need to finish up that degree and come home so I do not kill our dog with fancy food.)

I did not want to put too much effort into anything so I did not even mince or smash the garlic, I just sliced it.  Tossed everything together and then let it sit on the counter procrastinating getting up from my binge of "Supernatural."

Finally I dragged myself off the couch whipped up dinner and you know what?  "Supernatural" is even better when you are eating awesome food!

*Tippy really did not eat the steak he stared at me in a daze sniffing the air wishing I would give him a bite.

** OK I did cut Tippy of a slice of the steak and put it in his bowl.

2 Fillet Mignon
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
2 pinches of kosher salt (to taste)
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Wasabi Topping
1 tbsp 2 tsp softened butter
3 garlic cloves (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp 1 tsp wasabi horseradish sauce
Kosher salt (to taste)
Fresh crack pepper (to taste)

While steaks are cooking; mix ingredients together and heat at 150 degrees (in oven or toaster oven) for 5 min. Whisk, and then turn heat to 300 degrees for 10 min.

Preheat grill to medium high.

Add seasonings to room temperature steak and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Sear steaks on both sides for 2-3 minutes and then lower heat to medium and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until desired doneness.

Remove from grill and let sit covered for 5 minutes before spooning wasabi topping over them. Enjoy!
