It's hard to believe, but if you follow the directions perfectly—you'll have 4 servings of perfect filet mignon in just 30 minutes! This Best-Ever Filet Mignon recipe is perfect for a date-night in, or any time you want to celebrate life a little. Serve with your favorite sides (we love mashed potatoes and asparagus!) for a delicious and special meal.


• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil • 4 (6-ounce) filet mignon • Kosher salt • Freshly ground black pepper • 4 tablespoons butter • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped rosemary


Step 1

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Allow steak to sit out on the counter for about 30 minutes, bringing it to room temperature. Place on a cutting board and season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 3

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until just before the smoking point. Add the steak until very seared, about 5 minutes. Flip the steak over and add the butter and rosemary. Baste with butter and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer skillet to oven and cook until cooked to your liking, about 5 minutes for medium. Check every couple of minutes so you don't risk overcooking. Allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
