This is a fast, easy way to grill a tender, tasty filet mignon. The simple rub enhances the steak's flavor, giving it a rich beefiness with a hint of sweet from the brown sugar.


  • 4 filet mignon (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL cumin (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL paprika
  • 1 teaspoons/5 mL garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons/7.5 mL brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL sea salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Place dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. Coat each steak with spice mixture. Make sure each steak has a good amount of seasoning on it.

  2. Put steaks in a small glass dish, cover, and place in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Place steaks on grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side. When steaks reach the desired doneness, remove from heat and serve.
