Grilled Fillet Mignon
A fillet mignon is the most tender of all beef cuts. It is not as savory as some because it is also the lowest fat, but it is an excellent steak. It is pictured here with Spaghetti Aglio et Olio. Sautéed mushrooms are not included here, but are an excellent accompaniment.
Fillet minions, 2 inches thick
Fresh ground black pepper
Season the steaks with salt and pepper at least 1 hour before grilling.
Prepare the grill for direct cooking over a very hot fire. Cook the steaks directly over the fire for 12 to 15 minutes, or until done, turning every 4 minutes.
