Prime Bone-In Filet Mignon


  • 2 Prime bone-in filet mignon steaks, about 2 inches thick
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Take the steaks out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking to let them come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  3. Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  4. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over high heat and add the olive oil.
  5. Once the skillet is hot, add the steaks and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side to get a nice crust.
  6. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the steaks for 8-10 minutes, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature: 120°F for rare, 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, and 150°F for medium-well.
  7. While the steaks are cooking, prepare the herb butter. In a small bowl, mix together the room temperature butter, chopped parsley, chopped thyme, and minced garlic.
  8. Once the steaks are done, remove them from the oven and let them rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  9. Serve the steaks with a dollop of herb butter on top and a wedge of lemon on the side.

This bone-in filet mignon pairs well with a side of roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
