Learn how to cook the perfect Filet Mignon with a juicy and tender middle, and a super crusty sear, with these easy step-by-step instructions!
First, you MUST use a cast-iron skillet. Sure, a stainless steel skillet will work just fine, but a cast-iron skillet is how you will get that perfectly seared crust.
Second, a combo technique of pan-searing and then transferring them to the oven to finish cooking is key to a steak that is not overly scorched or underdone
When cooking your filet mignon, it is best to serve it medium-rare (125 degrees), or medium (130 degrees) at the most.
