The Husband and I LOVE a good Filet. Over the years we finally nailed down how to make a top notch steak with a great crust.
So first: Assemble the Ingredients! We have the steaks, pepper, salt, dried rosemary (from our garden), olive oil, garlic powder and butter. Preheat oven to 450
While assembling, I start the heat on high on my cast iron skillet. You want that pan super hot (if you flick some water on it, it should sizzle) Put a couple tablespoons of oil in the pan. You want your steaks to be close to room temp, so have them out for 30 minutes before you throw them on the pan. We take a lil oil and rub the steak. Then on both sides add all the seasonings.
Then throw em in the pan and don’t touch! Let them hang out for about 4 minutes and then flip. (Thats The Husband’s hairy arm up there btw)
NOM look at that crust! Let it cook another 4. Add a slab of butter on the top of both and then place pan in the oven for about another 5 minutes. Take the steak out of the oven and off the pan on to a resting area (cutting board, plate, whateva) Let them rest for about 5 minutes and then FEAST! I got too distracted by the delciousness so I didn’t get a plating shot. We served with some spinach and asparagus 🙂
