~National Filet Mignon Day~ Sunday, August 13, 2017
Is there really anything better than a perfectly done Filet Mignon? When you can achieve that perfect sear that gives it that crunch on the outside, and when it’s tender and done exactly to your liking on the inside?
Even better? You don’t even need a grill. These are started in a cast iron skillet on your stove and finished in the oven.
Salt and pepper your filets generously on both sides. Place them in a cast iron skillet on the stove, with some butter and olive oil that is scorching hot. Two minutes on each side.
Take the cast iron skillet and place it directly in your preheated oven.
Depending on how you like your steak, you will bake them for 4-5 minutes for a rare steak, Medium rare, 5-6 minutes, medium, 6-7 minutes, medium well 7-8 minutes.
Internal Temperatures for Steak:
Rare: 130°F to 135°F
Medium Rare: 140°F to 145°F
Medium: 155°F to 160°F
Well Done: 165°F to 170°F
Remove the steaks from the oven and place them on a plate. Cover them with foil and let them sit for 5 minutes before serving.
This recipe has a homemade herb butter that tops the steaks before serving. Simply made with butter, garlic, fresh tarragon and rosemary. It was also amazing on our baked potatoes. I don’t know about you, but it only seems right to have a baked potato accompany your steak.
Our other accompaniment? These Organic Marinated Mushrooms from Paisley Farm!
