Filet Mignon ala Paris
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Make a beautiful presentation with special sauces and greens, sort of like painting an artistic picture! And of course, good quality mayonnaise is always great. Also lots of fresh herbs and spinach, etc.
2 - 4 filet mignon steaks
Brush the steaks with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the pepper, salt and basil, patting it into the steaks as much as possible. Place a heavy bottomed saute pan over high heat until very hot. Add the grapeseed oil and then the steaks. Sear for about 3 - 4 minutes, reducing the heat as necessary. Turn meat over, and continue to sear on the other side,until cooked to your liking. Remove to serving plates and garnish with homemade mayonnaise or other sauces and baby spinach as desired.
