  • 4 filet mignon steaks 4-6 ounces each
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons neutral flavored oil such as safflower oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil or peanut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 garlic cloves smashed
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary


  • Let the steaks sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat a heavy pan such as a cast iron skillet over high heat.
  • Add the oil to the pan. Place the steaks in the pan in a single layer.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until browned.
  • Add the butter to the pan. After the butter has melted, add the garlic and rosemary to the pan. Stir to combine.
  • Spoon the butter mixture over the steaks. Insert a thermometer into the thickest part of one of the steaks. Place the meat in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes or until the thermometer registers 140 degrees F for a medium steak.
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes. Spoon the pan drippings over the steak, then serve immediately.
