At Ruth's Chris Steak House, my husband tried blue cheese on his filet, it was awesome! I had to go home and try to recreate that experience! My hubby loved it, so did I! You can follow the recipe and omit the blue cheese if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 2
    8 oz +. beef tenderloin steaks, 1.5" to 2" thick
  • 4 Tbsp
    blue cheese crumbles (optional)
  • dash(es)
    garlic salt or sea salt, to taste
  • dash(es)
    fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2-4 Tbsp
    real butter, melted (optional)

How to Make Filet Mignon encrusted with Blue Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350* degrees.
    Preheat oil in cast iron skillet or one without non-stick coating on HIGH.
    Season your steaks just before adding them to skillet.
  2. When skillet is hot, add seasoned steaks, cook for 3 minutes on one side. (set timer!)
    Turn over after 3 minutes, add blue cheese crumbles.
    (They will look very well done at this point, but NO worries! ;)
  3. Place steaks (still in the skillet) into preheated 350* oven. Roast for 12-13 minutes for medium rare steaks or 13-15 minutes for medium done steaks. Filet Mignon is best with a pink center for a juicy, tender steak!
  4. When steaks are done, remove from oven and let them REST for about 3 minutes before plating them.
    Meanwhile, heat your dinner plates in the 350* oven.
    Melt 2-4 Tbsp of real butter in the microwave in a small glass measuring cup or bowl. Pour on top of steaks (with or without blue cheese) just before serving. Pairs well with a Cabernet or Zinfandel.
    Enjoy!
