Classic Filet Mignon
Ah, filet mignon, one of my favorite things. I usually save filet for the restaurants, but every now and then I will catch them on sale and cook them up at home. There are so many recipes to try and sauces to make, but this go around, I decided to go with my original preparation. Nothing fancy, just some good seasoning and some A1 sauce on the side! I'm not a fan of measuring things, so this is an approximation :) Ingredients: 2 filet mignon steaks Montreal Steak Seasoning (approx 1 tb) Meat Tenderizer (just a sprinkle) 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce (approx.) olive oil and butter, to coat the pan Directions: Season both sides of the filet with Montreal steak seasoning. Place in a Ziploc bag and toss in the Worcestershire sauce to coat the steak. Seal and bring to room temperature, approximately 30 minutes. When you're ready to cook the filet, sprinkle the meat tenderizer on the filets right before cooking. Heat a pan, coated with the oil and butter, over high heat. Sear each side of the filet for about 1-2 minutes to lock in the moisture. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steak. I prefer my steak Medium, so I cooked them approximately 5 minutes per side. Serve with a side of your favorite steak sauce.
