"This recipe is very simple and very delicious also. I can prepare it, and I am a 14 year old boy! This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and only a bit longer in the broiler. This goes good with some mashed potatoes with butter and green beans with lemon squeezed on top. This is good, trust me!"

My husband is STILL raving about this recipe weeks later. So simple yet flavorful, and the filets were a perfect medium. I have attempted to cook filet several times before but never was it this good. This recipe yielded restaurant quality results. Thank you so much for sharing. And if at 14 you are already this good I cant wait until you have honed your skills. You may be the next Bobby Flay :)

We made these filets for dinner today and fixed Garlic Baked Potatoes as a side (also found on allrecipes.com). We grilled them instead of broiling them and they turned out great. One thing we didn’t like was the shallots. We thought they were a bit too strong and overpowering. Next time I will just sauté mushrooms and onions to serve with the filets. My husband also thought using butter instead of olive oil would be very good. Thanks for a great recipe.


This turned out exceptional on the first attempt! Make sure that you get yourself the top quality cut of meat. I served this for my fiance on Valentine's Day along with grilled shrimp and sauteed asparagus. Those recipes can be found here on allrecipes.com-- Ron's Grilled Shrimp Pan-Fried Asparagus Wonderful filet recipe! Thanks!!!
