Gordon Ramsay Filet Mignon Recipe

  • If you are going to cook beef from the refrigerator, make sure your beef is completely thawed before cooking. Let the beef rest at room temperature for about 20-40 minutes, or until completely tender, no more frozen bits.
  • Season your beef (1 – 1.5 inches thick) by covering it with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Using the high-medium heat, heat a cast iron pan. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil or grapeseed oil, spread it.
  • Place your steak into the pan, add the garlic, rosemary and thyme.
  • When the bottom side starts to brown slightly, turn the steak over. Roll or turn the steak on all sides so that the entire surface is golden or browned.
  • Add butter, pour melted butter, garlic, rosemary and thyme over the steak, so that it is well absorbed.
  • For medium rare steaks, cook in pan for 6-7 minutes for 1-inch steaks, and 8-10 minutes for 1.5-inch steaks, turning steaks halfway through.
  • If you want medium steaks, cook in pan for 7-8 minutes for 1-inch steaks, and 9-11 minutes for 1.5-inch steaks, turning steaks halfway through.
  • Now the Gordon Ramsay filet mignon is ready to be served.
