Let filets bake for 5-6 minutes for medium rare. So I after trying steak a couple times at restaurants, homemade roast beef, etc. Our filet mignon recipe with easy pan sauce for two makes a great date night meal. Then I found your recipe — followed it exactly, with a timer managed to turn off the fire alarms in the 2 minutes each side was cooking , and got myself a perfectly warm but rare, buttery, crunchy fillet — seriously better than in any restaurant. I will indeed never go back to grilling filets again. Hi Shawn, Have you ever tried searing longer and finishing less in the oven to get more of a crisp texture outside? For a perfect crust and juicy as hell middle, baking is the way to go.
Seared the steaks 2min per side and then just slid the griddle over while leaving the left hand burner on high baking for another five minutes with the lid closed. We decided on filet with halibut cheeks as a riff on surf and turf. Everyone that tried it wanted it and I had to promise there would be enough for everyone next time. Thank you for this recipe!! How long should you cook filet mignon? You want to get that perfect sear on the outside. I suppose I should be a little more specific in this post. So tender and juicy and very flavorful. When you do — sometime after you add the shallot and herbs — turn it to medium.
Give this guy an award! They are very versatile and can be used for so many different recipes. I only let it rest as long as it took me to put my sides on the plate, and it was perfectly med-rare, hot and juicy! ~ Caryn Its a cold rainy night here in Iowa tonight and I was I really wanting steak with mushrooms and onions when I found you on pinterest. The reason your getting the smoke is because olive oil has a high smoke rate at high temperatures. Your recipe was the first I found, I liked the name Kitchen Swagger and feeling confident I went for it. That lack of fat means two very important things.
Steaks turned out great the garlic herb butter was amazing! If you can fit it in the skillet, then I would give it a good sear on all sides in some butter. I really love how the pan juices get all caramelized and insanely delish! The cuts were about and inch and a half thick, pretty much like your pictures. The filet can probably withstand a higher level of doneness and remain tender. Since we used bacon-wrapped filets I did not include bacon in the sauce. We went about this a little differently and embellished upon it as well the result being beyond 5-star excellent. If the steak is 6 to 7oz I would still cook 2 minutes per side, then reduce time in the oven, maybe a minute or 1 to 2 minutes per oz. .
This allows them to come to room temperature. We strongly prefer grass-fed and grass-finished beef for its environmental impact, taste, and nutritional profile, which can add to the cost. I found this recipe and the last 4 times I have cooked Filet Mignon by this recipe it is melt in the mouth tender. Flip once and brown on the underside, about 2 minutes. Maybe vegetable would smoke less? My hubby the griller thanks you too! I am not the best cook, and I am horrible on the grill cannot consistently cook anything there so when I saw your recipe I had to try it for my Christmas dinner fillet mignon.
Taste for salt and pepper. The husband has been raving about this dish since I made it last week! I liked the sound of your technique so just put my long griddle smooth side up on the grill over flame and mixed the butter while that was heating. I had intended to grill cook my filet, but the weather decided for me that I had business being outside. Add the olive oil and let it get hot. Combine vermouth, vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the shallots and tarragon.
I added a little butter maybe a tablespoon and cooked one just one chopped shallot. No more restraunts when it comes down to filets!!!!! This post was originally published here on September 29, 2014. Whenever we go out to eat, we like to order a couple things and then split them. He was super pleased, as was I. Some a bit more complex. I did 8 min and put them in another 4 and they still were med-rare. I think I need to cut that amount down.
Ended up being perfect med rare. What size cast iron skillet should I buy? Less than 20 minutes start to finish! The trick for this recipe is to know your oven. Please, watch the video on how to butcher beef tenderloin into filet mignon steaks. I prefer to follow a plant-based diet about 90% of the time. I usually mix a bit of butter and blue cheese together and allow it to melt onto the steak after cooking, but making a sauce with some cream, or adding some bread crumbs and making a topping during the last few minutes of cooking are also great options.
I followed the recipe exactly for medium rare, using some prime cut filets. The easiest, juiciest and most flavorful steak I have ever prepared. Followed your notes to the letter even for the Skillet. You will want a nice hot grill for grilling your Filet Mignons; this will give the nice grilled crust on the tender steak.

What could be better or easier? Yes, I agree with you. Sizzling hot and juicy rare. Can I use convection on the oven? This is reduced then mixed into the prepared Hollandaise Sauce.
I love that while the steaks rest you have a nice seasoned pan for veggies or mushrooms. Fortunately the sides kicked ass and a little horseradish can solve any steak fail. Or you can just sop it up with a spoon. If you have a cast iron skillet, use it here! Please everyone just make it. I want to be a believer!!! Served this with asparagus and thick sliced beefsteak tomatoes drizzeled with basalmic and olive oil. If we were to cook 4 or 8 may need to install an evac fan and system installed.
