Seared Filet Mignon with Spinach and Berries Salad


I cannot believe it has taken me this long to post my filet mignon recipe. This recipe is a staple in my home, one of my favorite things to cook and eat. It is super easy to make, which is why I love cooking it, and it’s restaurant-quality delicious, which is why me and my hubby love eating it so much.

The way filet mignons smell after being grilled hypnotizes me. And that filet mignon taste…oh its taste! It’s overpowering. It completely takes over my senses and rocks my world. I cannot tell you enough how much I love a good filet.

When this particular filet is served at our dinner table, I seriously feel like my husband and I transform into wolves, and all we can think about is devouring that piece of delicious meat sitting in front of us. We don’t talk much, we allow our senses to take over (starting with smell), and then we consume impatiently.

If you’re anything like me, and love to treat yourself with a good steak, make this recipe. You will not regret it!

Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
For the salad:
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • ½ cup carrots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste
For the steak:
  • 2 filet mignons (you choose the size)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Santa Maria Seasoning
Instructions
For the salad:
  1. Add spinach, raspberries, blackberries, carrots and sunflower seeds to your salad bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge until dinner is ready to be served.
  2. Prepare vinaigrette and set aside: in a small mixing bowl add olive oil, vinegar, black pepper and sea salt; whisk ingredients lightly.
For the steak:
  1. Season your filets with olive oil and Santa Maria seasoning (both sides).
  2. Turn grill on high, including the searing station, and wait (about 5 minutes) for it to reach a high temperature.
  3. Using grilling tongs, grab each filet carefully and place them over the searing station. Close the grill and let it sear for 3 minutes. Grab your tongs and turn each filet carefully, so the other side sears for 3 minutes.
  4. Once each side has seared for 3 minutes, turn middle knob off and searing station off, and allow your filets to cook for 6 more minutes.
  5. Remove from grill, turn grill off and serve immediately. Best steak you will ever have.
