Pan-Seared Filets

The Filet Mignon cut is from DLM Natural Beef Tenderloin, and is lifetime free of antibiotics and hormones. Let me tell you, when you start with a great quality steak like this, you're in for a treat.


2 DLM Natural Beef Filet Mignons, 6 to 8 oz each
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Generously season the filets with sea salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron or heavy bottomed skillet over high heat. When hot, add the oil and sear the filets evenly on all sides. Remove from heat. (If skillet is not ovenproof, transfer to an ovenproof pan.) Top each filet with a tablespoon of butter and place in preheated oven. Cook the filets for 8-12 minutes to an internal temperature of 120°F for rare to 130°F for medium. Remove the steaks to a platter and let rest for at least 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
