It's important to feed the ones you love the food they like to eat. In my case that means steak. Good steak. While at the store this afternoon I came across some lovely Filet Mignon Steaks. I like to cook mine in a cast iron skillet and finish them off in the oven.
Step One: Pamper your steaks. Give them a pat down with some salt & pepper, fresh chopped rosemary and chopped garlic. Place them in a plastic bag and add in 4 tablespoons of good olive oil and a splash of Worcestershire sauce & soy sauce. Let them mellow out in the fridge for about 3-4 hours and then let sit out for about 15 minutes before cooking.
Step Two: Sear all sides in a cast iron pan over medium heat. I usually go for about 3 minutes each side.
Step Three: Place in a 475 degree oven for 3-6 minutes to finish them off. I like mine medium rare so they go in for about 3 minutes.
Step Four: Let your steaks rest. Set them on a cutting board and cover them with foil. Leave them alone for about 10 minutes. If you cut into them too soon all the juices will run out.
For the Endive: While your steaks are resting cut them length wise and sear (over medium heat) flat side down in the same pan your cooked the steaks in. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt & pepper.
For the Baby Broccoli: Steam until tender and season with red chile flakes, salt & pepper. If you want it extra tasty add a little butter.
