The Filet Mignon is the ultimate symbol of refined indulgence. Filet Mignon is a special-occasion classic. For this best lean and singular cut of meat, you can certainly get away with this most simple recipe.

    Ingredients

  • 2 filet mignons, (about 1 1/2 inches thick) ready tied by Olivier’s
  • Coarse salt and very coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Red Wine Sauce or Truffle Butter for serving (optional)

Directions

1.

Season filets very generously on all sides with salt and pepper (especially pepper), patting in firmly

2.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Cook filets until desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side (depending on thickness) for medium-rare

3.

Remove strings from filets, and serve with Red Wine Sauce or top with Truffle Butter for it’s fancy flavour and aroma, if desired.

Bon Appetit!
