Filet Mignon in Rosemary and Butter



  • 2 filet steaks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Set meat out to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Sprinkle both sides of steak with kosher salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in cast iron skillet on medium high. Place meat in hot skillet and sear for 3 minutes on the first side. Do not disturb meat. After 3 minutes, turn meat and sear for another 2-1/2 minutes.

Turn off heat and place a half tablespoon of butter on each filet. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and place in preheated oven for 5 minutes. If you want your steak cooked a little more, keep in the oven for 8-10 minutes.


Until next time, Kris
