Salt and Pepper Filet Mignon

There’s a reason why filet mignon is the most popular steak cut. Buttery-tender yet juicy, this steak doesn’t need much more than salt and pepper to be delicious.

  • Serves 2
  • Active time 10 minutes
  • Total time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 MOINK filets mignons
  • 1 Tbsp. avocado or vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper

Instructions

In the oven:

  1. Arrange the oven rack 5 inches from the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or coat a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place in the oven and preheat the broiler. (Allowing the pan to heat up along with oven ensures nice browning on the meat.)
  2. Rub the steaks with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Carefully remove the preheated pan from the oven and add the steak.
  3. Broil for 9 minutes or to desired doneness, turning the steaks over after 4 minutes.
  4. Let the steaks rest 10 minutes before slicing.

On the grill:

  1. Preheat the grill to high heat until hot.
  2. Rub the steaks with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill, 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and grill covered with the grill lid, 7 minutes longer, or to desired doneness, turning after 3 minutes.
  5. Let the steaks rest 10 minutes before slicing.

On the stovetop:

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet (we prefer cast-iron) over medium-high heat.
  2. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the steaks to the pan and cook 7 to 8 minutes or to desired doneness, turning after 5 minutes.
  4. Let the steaks rest 10 minutes before slicing.
