How to Make The Best & Easiest Filet Mignon!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pat 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.
  • 2Add 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.
  • 3Sear 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.
