Whole Roasted Filet of Mignon

Eddie Szczerba


With the price of this expensive cut of beef being so high it's a sure bet to roast it this way in your oven!!

pinch tips: How to Tie a Roast





15 Min


25 Min


4-5 pound trimmed and tied fillet mignon
1 stick
butter, unsalted room temperature
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
fresh ground black pepper
bay leaves
1 can(s)
beef broth, reduced sodium 12oz.
1/2 can(s)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat the oven to 500 degrees.
Rub the butter all over the roast then sprinkle generously with the salt and pepper.
Cook the roast for 20-25 minutes for rare.
30 for medium rare.
Longer for well done,about 40-45 minutes. Why anyone would want it that way is beyond me!
Whe it's done to your liking,remove it from the pan and cover it in another pan with foil poking a few holes in the foil to allow the steam to escape.
Return the original roasting pan to the stove top,add the beef stock and water,bay leaves and bring to a rapid boil,scraping the bottom to get the drippings into your sauce.
Strain the liquid into a saucepan,remove the bay leaves and thicken with a slurry until it just runs clear on your spoon. You have just made au jus for your roast!
Now you can serve,slice the roast in 2inck thick slices,plate with au jus first,then the beef on top an your choice of sides! Enjoy! :)
