Ingredients

  • 2 filet mignon steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Start by taking the filet mignon steaks out of the refrigerator and allowing them to come to room temperature. This ensures even cooking.
  2. Preheat your grill or stovetop pan over high heat.
  3. While the grill or pan is heating up, rub the steaks with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Let them sit for a few minutes to absorb the flavors.
  4. Place the steaks on the grill or pan, along with the rosemary sprigs.
  5. Cook the steaks for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness. Adjust the time according to your preference.
  6. During the last minute of cooking, add a tablespoon of butter to each steak and baste them with the melted butter.
  7. Remove the steaks from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a tender and juicy steak.
