Cooking fillet mignon in oven is easy, and will taste just like it was hot off the grill.
Not just fillet mignon but any steak. Cooking steak in an oven will be provided here step-by-step. Sound good? It is wonderful, my mouth is already watering.
This is a grilled rib eye steak topped with chimichurri steak sauce.
Buying the Steaks
You should buy thicker steaks to cook in the oven; thinner steaks are so much easier to over-cook, and that means a tough and dry steak. Make sure it is over 1 inch thick.
Marinate the Steaks
I have the best steak marinade for you to use. I usually marinade them for a couple of hours in the refrigerator. Take the meat out of the refrigerator and let sit on the counter in the marinade for 30 to 45 minutes before cooking.
PREHEAT oven to 450 degrees.
Cast Iron Skillet
Meanwhile, get out the cast iron skillet or heavy frying pan. If you do not own a cast iron skillet, it would be well worth the $20 to purchase one. You won't believe how much you will use it.
Fire up that skillet on medium high heat and rub the steaks with canola oil. For 2 steaks mix together:
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
sprinkle over each side of the steak. Searing takes approximately one to two minutes on each side. Place steaks pan all into the oven and cook 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare, and 10 to 12 minutes for medium doneness.
POTATOES, Baked or Mashed?
Baked Potatoes In A Flash
Scrub the potatoes and rub generously with canola oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and microwave 3 to 4 minutes or until fork tender. Now wrap in foil and bake in the preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. The potatoes will taste like they were baked for an entire hour. Delicious.
You can also have my loaded mashed potatoes. They are amazing with steak.
