Servings 2 people


  • 2 filet mignon steaks
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Use a meat tenderizer to flatten and tenderize the steaks. (We feel that grassfed beef steaks can always benefit from this additional step.) Salt and pepper the steaks as desired.
  • Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add filets and cook 5-7 minutes on each side.
  • Remove from heat, cover filets with foil and allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.


We served our filets with roasted root vegetables and steamed broccoli. Perfection on a plate!
