A Note on Seasoning a Filet Mignon on the Grill
A good piece of beef doesn’t really need that much seasoning. This is true. We promise the taste of our 100% grass fed & finished steak is mind-blowing with just some good ol’ oil and salt. No pepper, no crazy amounts of spices. However, if you’d got a good rub you want to use, by all means, use it! But if you are low on seasonings, this is not a problem — a nice helping of salt will add to the delicious char from a grill. Here is our foolproof method for grilling the perfect filet mignon below.
A video overview
A huge part of grilling is the prep and the clean-up for your gas or charcoal grill. Watch these videos below to learn how to maintain your grills before you get started.
Heat your grill to high, around 350°F — 400°F.
Open the steaks and pat them dry with a paper towel. You want a dry steak to get that great sear.
Season liberally with salt on both sides.
Oil both sides with high heat oil and oil grates to prevent steaks from sticking.
Place the steaks on the grill and cook them until they are golden brown and slightly charred.
Flip once, and then rotate 30 degrees to get perfect grill marks.
Be sure to use a food thermometer (a digital one if you can) and check all sides for doneness.
Here is our doneness temperature chart:
- Rare: 95–105 degrees
- Medium Rare: 105–115 degrees
- Medium: 125–135 degrees
- Medium Well: 135–145 degrees
