What can be better than filet mignon? It's delicious and tender. This recipe calls for dried herbs though you can substitute with fresh herbs instead. If you are going to do so, double the amount that the recipe requires.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 filet mignon, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

Heat olive oil and garlic in a covered microwave safe bowl for 50-60 seconds. Remove and allow to cool. Add herbs and stir. Place filet mignon into a shallow glass dish. Pour herb mixture over and turn steaks to coat. Cover and let marinate for 1-4 hours in refrigerator. Preheat grill for high heat. Remove steaks, remove excess oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from heat and serve.

Delicious!!!, Member lovetruthhappy

As a bonus, it's also very easy to make! What I also loved about it was that it contains all the spices and ingredients I normally have on a regular basis. Don't let that undermine the amazing flavor of this steak!
