Saute in hot (bubbling, not smoking) butter, turn,smear on mustard and worcestershire sauce, turn once to get some in the pan, then back to second side. Great to add mushrooms or onions. Grilled is great of course. This way is nice if you don't have a grill. Of course it has to be pink inside. the butter helps the lack of fat in the meat. If you want salt, add sea salt after cooking. You can also put more butter on the top. Don't waste the pan juices--can loosen with a little wine (off burner) then return for slow reduction while the steak rests.

Grill it. That's what I'll do. Thanks. I always thought it was not fatty enough to grill.

First 5 posts said grill it.

Game over.

Let the cooking begin!

You butchers, the best way to cook a filet is to slow cook it.

Dry meat with clean, lint free towel
Season with Sea Salt and Coarse Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F

Get iron skillet almost smoking hot (really hot)

Place steaks in skillet, do not move around.

Fry on high heat for 3 minutes, then flip and fry for 3 more minutes.

Place on oven pan and put in oven to finish cooking.


3-4 minutes for med rare
5-7 medium
8-12 medium well


After cooking in oven, set on plate with tin foil over top, cover well. Do not completely wrap it, you want the juices on the plate.

Let sit wrapped for 5 minutes, then serve.

Get a good cast iron skillet. Heat it up to near red hot. Put in olive oil and butter. Rub sea salt into both sides of the filet. Before the butter starts to burn, sear the meat, one minute exactly each side.

After one minute on the second side, turn the heat down to medium low. Three more minutes, then flip it and give it three minutes on the other side. This is for perfect medium rare. Make it four minutes per side for medium medium.

You will never cook a filet mignon on the grill again.

Re: Best way to cook filet mignon?
You wrap them in bacon only when you grill / Roast them.

Usually when you put them in a saute pan you have them cut smaller into something called a tournado.

Its like a 4 ounce slice instead of a 8 ounce steak.


Mark it off on a hot grill then finish it in the oven.
