Yield: 4 servings
- 4 filet mignon or rib eye steaks
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Preheat an oven proof skillet, preferably cast-iron with raised grill ridges, over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and let heat for 2-3 minutes.
Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Place in skillet and sear for 3-4 minutes on first side until the steaks release easily from the pan and have a dark brown crust. Turn and sear for 3-4 minutes on the second side.
Place a pat of butter on top of each steak, and place the pan in the oven. Roast for 8-13 minutes until desired doneness. Remove pan from oven, cover with foil, and let steaks stand for 10 minutes before serving.
