How to Make How to Grill a Perfect Filet Mignon

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat grill. Grill filets mignons for 3 to 5 minutes per side, which will cook them to medium or medium-rare doneness. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
  2. NOTE: One key point to remember when cooking filet mignon, whether you broil, roast, grill or pan fry it, is to use high heat in the process. A second key point is not to cook it too long; filet mignon is particularly susceptible to drying out as it cooks. Connoisseurs will tell you that filets mignons can only be properly appreciated medium-rare or even rare. But if you really can't stand the thought of eating steak that pink, feel free to cook longer. Again, start with high heat so as to minimize the time needed to reach your preferred state of doneness.
  3. By the way, a red wine such as cabernet sauvignon or burgundy makes a great accompaniment to filet mignon.
