The best filet mignon you'll ever eat: tender, moist, and oh so juicy. Topped with a super flavorful garlic herb compound butter, this recipe produces an epic meal.
Liberally season steaks on both sides with plenty of salt, as well as fresh cracked black pepper to taste. Place on a wire rack over a baking sheet and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, preferably a couple hours. If letting stand for more than one hour, keep in refrigerator, then let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.
