Filet Mignon Recipe

This delicious Filet Mignon Recipe is pan-seared with herbs, garlic, and butter until perfectly cooked and golden brown.

If you follow these foolproof procedures, you will always have impeccable steak.


– filet mignons – olive oil – garlic – sprigs of fresh thyme – unsalted butter – blue cheese butter

Add cold oil to a cast-iron skillet or your favorite frying pan and set it to medium-high heat until it smokes lightly.

Add your seasoned with salt and pepper steaks, immediately turning the heat to medium, ensuring you don’t burn your filet.

The next thing to do is start pumping some flavor into the pan by adding garlic cloves, fresh thyme sprigs, and unsalted butter.

I prefer a rare to medium-rare filet mignon, around 125°F internally. Cooking an 8-ounce filet using this method takes about 3 to 3 ½ minutes per side.

Once you flip the steak over, begin to baste it with a large spoon by tilting the panhandle towards you.
