|Grilled filet mignon with mushrooms. (Photographed in my living room, because that's where the light was).|
Anyway, Sunday I grilled up the last filet mignon!
About thirty minutes before I started the grill, I took the filets out of the fridge, patted them dry, rubbed them with a little olive oil, and let them sit on the kitchen side so they could warm up a bit.
I heated the grill up to 400°F, brushed the rack with canola oil, put the filets down, grilled them for 4 minutes, flipped them over, grilled them for 4 minutes, flipped them again and grilled them for 3 more. Then I remove the filets from the grill, covered them loosely with foil and let them rest for 10 minutes.
They were fantastic. Melting. Tender. Flavorful. Beautiful.
