Pan Seared Filet Mignon

This is the perfect way to cook filet mignon at home simple, flavorful and absolutely juicy. Great for any time you want to cook a special dinner!

Serving Size: 2


 2 Filet Mignons
 salt & ground black pepper to taste (season generously!)
 1 tablespoon oil
 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
 5 cloves garlic peeled
 4 sprigs fresh rosemary


 Remove fillet steaks from fridge 30-60 minutes before preparing. Unwrap, season and let sit on a plate on the counter.
 Once ready to cook, heat oven to 360°F. Place a medium cast iron skillet over high heat for 3-5 minutes. Once hot, carefully add oil (watch out for splatters). Sear the Filet Mignon for 2-3 minutes per side , until browned with a nice crust. Immediately remove skillet from heat.
 Carefully add butter, garlic and rosemary to skillet. Place skillet in oven and bake for 2-8 minutes, depending on preferred doneness.
 Note: 5 minutes will yield fillet steaks cooked to about medium. 3-4 minutes will yield medium-rare fillet steaks. 2 minutes will yield rare fillet steaks. 6-7 minutes will yield medium-well and 8 minutes well-done fillet steaks. The exact timing depends on your exact Filet Mignon weight and thickness.
 Remove steak from skillet and place on a plate. Tent with foil, then rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve with garlic cloves and butter from skillet.
