September 16th, 2018 marked National Filet Day. This is our go to, never-fail Filet recipe .
Pick out your Filets with care ever mindful that you are eating what your food ate. Say NO to corn fed meat. Corn has an abundance of Lectins = Inflammation. GRASS FED IS KING.
Say NO to corn.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Marinate your Filets in a coating of dry rub consisting of sea salt, pepper, and Trader Joes Everyday Seasoning. Allow meat to come to room temperature ~ 30 minutes upon removing them from refrigerator. Coat cast iron skillet with Avocado Oil. Avocado Oil has the highest flash point so as to not go rancid. Turn burner on medium high heat. Test skillet with sprinkles of water. If they dance, it is ready. Place your marinated room temperature Filets on the skillet and sear each side for 2 minutes.
Place Filets and your cast iron skillet directly into oven. Cook in oven anywhere from 3-6 minutes depending upon the cut of meat you selected. For example: small, lean pieces cook to pink center in about 3 minutes.
Remove Filets from oven once desired center color is achieved. Plate up with the following options: Roquefort, Blue Cheese Crumbles, Apple Wood Smoked Bacon or simply a generous pat of Grass Fed Butter. Take care to cover with foil and allow Filets to set for ~ 5 minutes. Serve immediately or keep it under wraps until pregame | kick off.
