Filet Mignon

January 12, 2011 diningwithadiva

Last night, I cooked filet mignon for the first time.  I found a recipe in the new Barefoot Contessa Cookbook and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make.  The key seems to be searing the beef on very high heat first, then placing into the oven to finish cooking.  The recipe calls for fleur de sel, but I used kosher salt and it still tasted wonderful.  I also roasted some fingerling potatoes and it turned out to be a great winter meal.
