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!!

How to Make Whole Roasted Filet of Mignon


  • 1Heat the oven to 500 degrees.
    Rub the butter all over the roast then sprinkle generously with the salt and pepper.
  • 2Cook 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!
  • 3Whe 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!
  • 4Now 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! :)
