The easiest and best way to cook filet mignon is on stove top, using a cast iron skillet.

This pan seared filet mignon recipe takes a total of 5 minutes to make, with 3 minutes resting time on the cast iron skillet. This is the best filet mignon steak ever. It is perfect with the most tender, juiciest, buttery medium-well steak that rival the best steak restaurant.

This is quite possibly the most spectacular piece of steak you’ll ever make at home, just like Gordon Ramsey!


Filet Mignon is the expensive boneless cut of beef from the small end of the tenderloin, as illustrated in the chart above. It’s also known as Tenderloin Steak, Beef Loin or Chateaubriand.

This is the most prized beef cut because the meat is tender, lean, succulent, with a buttery texture.

The best cooking methods are pan-searing on skillet, skillet to oven, broil, sous vide or grilling.


When you have premium grade meat, you only need a few ingredients for seasonings and flavors:

  • Salt. I used Maldon sea salt flakes.
  • Freshly ground black pepper.
  • Garlic.
  • Rosemary
