TonyBeardotcom 2y agoGreat recipe! Mine was marinated in a white cooking wine/white balsamic/Jack Daniel's concoction over night. The cooking was the interesting part, as the apartment did become a smoke-filled room pretty quickly! Mos def will be on the menu again!

sgrishka 7y agoA good recipe for filet mignon steaks simply seasoned with salt and pepper and pan-seared in butter. We used 8-ounce steaks, about 2-inch thick, and seared them undisturbed in the hot butter and oil as directed for rare steaks (both sides were well-browned and a nice crust had formed). However, we like our steaks medium-rare...so we then transferred them to a 500 degree F oven to finish cooking for about 6 minutes. We then let them rest, loosely tented with foil, for about 5 minutes before serving. The resulting steaks (pictured) had wonderful pinkish red medium-rare centers and fabulous flavor. For a nice counterpoint, we topped each steak with a pat of a simple compound butter infused with a puree of roasted garlic and tuscan herbs.
