Basted in herb butter, Twice Cooked Filet Mignon is a decadent and delicious dinner for a special occasion. Fresh herbs tied together with twine are used to “paint” butter on tender steaks, to infuse them with a ton of flavor. The steaks are then finished on a hot grill, for beautiful char marks and a hint of smoke. 

Filet mignon is from the upper end of the tenderloin, which means it doesn’t get much exercise. This results in a cut of steak that is super tender and flavorful. You can often find it at the grocery store, also referred to as beef tenderloin. If none is available, or the cut is out of your budget, you can substitute it with a top blade or top sirloin roast. 

It’s key to use fresh herbs as the basting brush in the recipe. They impart a subtle flavor when dipped into the butter for basting. If you can’t find thyme and rosemary, try using oregano or sage. Save the leftover butter to cook vegetables, to serve alongside the steaks, if desired.
