Ingredients

beef filets, room temperature
salt and pepper
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pat down your filets with a paper towel, to soak up any extra moisture. (you don't want to steam your filets!) Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees F.
2
Add the olive oil to a cast iron skillet and let get hot. Do not let it get too hot to where it is smoking.
While your oil is heating, crack your pepper and salt onto a plate. Mix together, and gently push the top of your filet into the salt and pepper. Continue with the other side.
3
Sear your filets on all sides until lightly browned. Leave in skillet and place skillet in oven (center rack) for 5 (rare) to 8 (med. rare) minutes. When done, remove from oven and skillet to stop cooking.
Let rest for about 5 minutes.
