  • 1 1/2 inch thick Filet - room temp
  • Oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • heat an oven safe pan (I prefer cast iron) on the stove top with oil.
  • when it's nice and hot sprinkle some salt and pepper in the pan and add the filet.
  • Don't move it, cook for 2 1/2 mins.
  • Then, using tongs, flip the filet and cook for another 2 1/2 mins.
  • Flip the filet again and put the whole pan in the oven.
  • Bake for 4-10 mins depending on if you want it rare (4), medium rare (my choice- 5 mins), medium (6), medium well (8) and well (10). I use the finger test or you could use a thermometer
  • I like to flip it once during the cook time.
  • Once it's done pull it out, wrap it in foil and let it sit for 5 mins.
