Perfect Filet Mignon Recipe

Perfect Filet Mignon on The Cooktop

Filet Mignon ‘grilled’ on the cooktop for a crispy outside and finished in the oven for a perfectly tender inside.


Find your perfect Circulon.


2 6-8 ounce of filet mignon
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of ghee or olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of chives chopped


  1. Remove steaks from refrigerator and allow to rest on counter for a half hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and move oven rack in center position.
  3. Place oven-safe grill pan on cooktop. Turn heat to high and allow pan to heat for two-three minutes. The key to making a steak with a crispy seared outside is a hot pan.
  4. While pan heats, sprinkle both sides of filet mignon with salt and pepper. Turn heat down to medium/high, add ghee or olive oil to hot pan. Carefully add steaks to grill pan.
  5. Cook steak until a brown crust is established (about five minutes). Use tongs to turn steaks. Sear second side and then place pan in oven. Cook in oven for 5-9 minutes depending on the thickness of your steaks.
  6. Remove pan from oven, place ½ a tablespoon of butter on each steak and allow steaks to ‘rest’ for five minutes. Garnish with chives and serve.
