Pan Seared Filet with Blue Cheese and Butter

I have never cooked my own filet before so this was quite nerve racking, but this turned out delicious! Though it's tempting, remember to not flip too many times as this causes the meat to dry out.

  • One small filet (my sister-in-law got me a few for Christmas) - 1 inch thick
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Butter and blue cheese (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 500 degrees
  2. Make sure meat is fresh, not frozen, and pay dry
  3. Place nonstick skillet over high heat and add olive oil
  4. When oil is hot, carefully place filet in oil and cook for 2 minutes
  5. Flip, and cook another 2 minutes
  6. Place filet in oven safe container and cook for 7 minutes, or until your liking
  7. Remove from oven, cover with aluminum foil, and let sit for 10 minutes
  8. Top with butter and blue cheese, salt and pepper (optional)
