If you're new to grilling steaks or a fan of simplicity, then this recipe is for you. Filet mignon is a delicious, tender cut of beef that really benefits from the grill. Serve with a side of twice baked potatoes and grilled vegetables.    

What You'll Need

  • 4 filet mignon, about 1 3/4 inches thick
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL sea salt (or coarse salt)
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL grapeseed or avocado oil

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to high heat. Combine salt and black pepper. Rub onto both sides of steak and placed onto well-oiled grill grates; use a high smoke point oil like grapeseed or avocado.
  2. Cook steaks 5 to 6 minutes per side or until it reaches preferred doneness. Remove from grill and let steaks rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Plate with your favorite sides.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can top the steaks with sauteed onions, mushrooms, or your favorite sauce reductions.
