📖 Recipe Card
Foods That Start With F: Grilled Filet Mignon (+More Tasty Food Ideas!)
- 1 pound filet mignon (thick-cut steaks, about 4 ounces each)
- 2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- To begin, set up your grill for two-zone cooking and preheat it to high heat (450°F+ / 232°C+), and clean and oil the grates.
- While the grill is preheating, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature.1 pound filet mignon
- Immediately before cooking, generously season all sides of the steaks with Kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper.2 teaspoon Kosher salt, 2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Place the steaks over the direct heat and close the lid of the grill. Sear for 2-3 minutes per side.
- After the steaks are seared, move them to the indirect heat and close the lid of the grill. Cook until they reach an internal temperature of 125°F (51°C).
- Transfer the filet mignon steaks to a serving platter or cutting board and loosely cover them with aluminum foil. Allow the meat to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
- You'll want to make sure your steaks are completely thawed out before getting started.
- For even cooking, remove your steaks from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking to take the chill off.
- After the steaks are removed from the grill, they will continue to rise in temperature for an additional 5°F while they are resting (called 'carryover cooking').
- You can cook your steaks on the stovetop as well! Heat ½ tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet. Once hot, sear the steaks for 2-3 minutes per side. After flipping to the second side, baste the steaks with butter for extra flavor!
- I recommend enjoying filet mignon when it is cooked medium-rare. Take a look at this guide to beef internal temperatures for more information.
- To store: Keep any leftover steaks in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- To reheat: To reheat steak, you'll want to warm it in the oven at 250°F (120°C) until warmed through.
