How to Grill Filet Mignon with Peppers and Onions:

  • Place steaks over direct grill fire for about 2 minutes.

  • Flip the steaks and place over indirect fire and cook with the grill closed about 8 minutes. 

Check steaks with a digital thermometer, cooking to desired doneness. You can remove from the grill about 5° before reaching desired temperature. The steaks will come up to temperature as they rest. This will ensure the steaks are not over cooked.

INTERNAL TEMPERATURES FOR RIBEYE STEAKS:

  • Rare:  130°
  • Medium Rare: 140°
  • Medium: 155°

After steaks have rested for about 10 minutes, top with peppers and onions and serve with grilled corn on the cob and grilled garlic rosemary potatoes

How to Store and Reheat:

Store leftover steak in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days.

Slice steak and reheat in a skillet coated with olive oil over low heat, 3- 4 minutes.

The Secret to Tender and Juicy Steaks:

A  digital thermometer is a must have for grilling steaks. There’s no guessing when the steaks are done, you will know for sure. Over cooked steak is dry and loses a lot of flavor. 

Also, make sure to let the steak rest before slicing. Five to ten minutes is all it takes and the juices redistribute through the steak.

Why is Filet Mignon So Expensive?

Filet Mignon is the beef tenderloin and is the most tender cut. It is also a smaller cut than ribeyes or t-bone steaks which also contributes to the cost.

On occasion, we find whole beef tenderloins at our local grocery store for half price of what the filet mignon steaks are priced. Ask your butcher and you might find a better deal. We love to grill garlic butter beef tenderloin for holiday dinners.

The whole tenderloin needs to be trimmed and sliced but that is super simple and can save quite a bit of money.  That makes for an affordable steak dinner, especially if you are cooking for the family or entertaining guests.

  • Steak and Cheese Bites are the perfect appetizer for any get together. Steak bites are grilled really quickly and served with melted Jarlsberg cheese for a hearty and delicious starter. 
  • Grilled Ribeye Steaks have a delicious brown sugar and garlic rub and are one of our most requested recipes. A hit with the cookout crowd, every single time.
