Grilled Filet Mignon

Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Stand time 5 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Grilled filet mignon is one of the best ways to enjoy this ultra-tender cut of beef. For more recipes like this one, see our complete guide to beef tenderloin recipes.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-oz.) beef tenderloin fillets
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Sprinkle fillets with pepper and salt.

  2. Grill, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes

We cook our tenderloin fillets to medium-rare. If you like your meat cooked medium or well done, increase the grilling or pan-searing time per side. (Cook approximately 1 minute more on each side for medium, 2 minutes more on each side for medium-well, and 3 minutes more on each side for well done.)
