2 fillet mignon steaks


olive oil

kosher salt


1T. butter



Remove steaks from refrigerator and let rest for 40 minutes before cooking.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Heat cast iron (or other oven-safe pan) over medium-medium high heat. 


When steaks have rested, generously coat every side with kosher salt and pepper.  Place in cast iron pan and cook for 2 minutes.  Turn steak over and cook for 2 more minutes.  If desired, add 1 T. of butter and spoon several times over steak.  Place pan in the oven and bake for 7 minutes (1 minute less for a less cooked steak.) 

Remove steak from oven and pan.  Put a pat of butter on top and let rest 10 minutes.
