Cast iron skillets are the best for this steak, because it get so hot and gives them such a great sear. They are fairly cheap and will last forever this is the one I have. The garlic herb butter is such a perfect combo to top this filet off with.
My love for Filet Mignon is strong! I mean it just melts in your mouth. The very reason why it is so dang expensive, So it is a huge treat when we have it.
You could cut the garlic herb butter in half, depending on how many steaks you make. Or just keep it in the fridge and use another time.
So many endless possibilities with what you can add to this butter to make it even more delicious!
This Garlic Herb Butter is fantastic on anything really, just keep it in your fridge and give it a try on beef, chicken or veggies. It’s amazing on my Easy Sheet Pan Lemon Herb Chicken.
