Ingredients

  • Filet Mignon- 2, 8 ounce filets

  • kosher salt- 4 tsp

  • freshly cracked pepper- 4 tsp

  • butter- 1 stick

  • olive oil- 1 Tbsp

  • garlic- 2 cloves, chopped

  • parsley- 1 Tbsp, chopped

  • thyme- 1 Tbsp, chipped

  • lemon zest- 1 tsp

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Take 1/2 stick of butter, softened, and mix well with the peeled, chipped garlic, the chopped herbs and the lemon zest. Form into a log and refrigerate. Generously season the filet's with salt and pepper Heat te remainder of the butter (1/2 stick) and the olive oil in a cast iron skillet to a screaming hot temperature. Sear the filets in a screaming hot pan for about 2/3 minutes per side, or until a nice brown crust has formed While the streak is searing, continue to spoon the residual butter in the pan on top of the meat while it's cooking Once both sides are seared, place in the center of the oven for about 6-8 minutes, depending on how thick your steak is. In the last minute of cooking, take the log of compound butter and slice a nice thick piece to place on top Your steak will be ready when it's approximately 135 degrees in the center, or when you push lightly on the top center of the steak and it gently and slowly bounces back.
