Easy Yet Romantic Filet Mignon

chef in the making

"This recipe is very simple and very delicious also. I can prepare it, and I am a 14 year old boy! This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and only a bit longer in the broiler. This goes good with some mashed potatoes with butter and green beans with lemon squeezed on top. This is good, trust me!"

We made these filets for dinner today and fixed Garlic Baked Potatoes as a side (also found on We grilled them instead of broiling them and they turned out great. One thing we...

It's a very simple and easy recipe. Whoever rated this as a 1 star cannot follow simple instructions. My steak came out the way my husband & I wanted it to be.

So, so simple and even my picky eater loved it! And for anyone else trying this recipe... I didn't use filet mignon, but a similar cut of meat and was out of onion powder and used garlic powder...

Very "easy" and I guess you could say there's nothing more "romantic" than a nice filet mignon when it comes to a cozy dinner for two. I did however do these a bit differently - I rubbed these ...

I made these from a tenderloin that I had cut up. Other than omitting the shallots, I didn't change anything else. This recipe works really well with a good smoked bacon (applewood is my fav). G...

Way to go "Chef in the making". I think it is wonderful that you are learning to cook. Very good flavor! Pairs nicely with carmelized onion mashed potatoes.

It was very good. I'm not a great cook, so I can appreciate simple yet tasty recipes. Thanks a lot chef in the making! My family loved your recipe
