Grilled Filet Mignon

When you grill meat as fine as filet mignon, all you need is a little salt and pepper. Serve it with grilled potatoes or corn on the cob.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 11 to 13 minutes


Four 8-ounce filet mignon steaks, each about 3/4 inch thick
olive oil, for brushing
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 red bell pepper, grilled and thinly sliced, for garnish
1 yellow bell pepper, grilled and thinly sliced, for garnish

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill so that the coals are medium-hot. Spray the grilling grate lightly with nonstick vegetable spray. Brush each filet with olive oil and then sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Grill over the medium-hot coals for 11 to 13 minutes, turning once during grilling, for medium-rare meat. Take care when turning the meat to position it on the grill so that it takes on grilling marks. Turn the steaks with tongs, not a fork, to prevent juices from escaping. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and let it rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve 1 steak per person, garnished with thinly sliced grilled red and yellow peppers.
