Grilled Herb Rubbed Fillet




2 each Beef tenderloin, cut into 4 ounce portions, trimmed


1 teaspoon Rosemary, fresh, chopped


1 teaspoon Thyme, fresh, chopped


¼ teaspoon Salt


¼ teaspoon Crushed black pepper


1 each Non stick pan spray




  • Preheat grill, cast iron skillet, or sauté pan.
  • Season filets on both sides
  • Lightly spray pan with non stick pan spray
  • Once heat source is hot, place filets on cooking surface.
  • If grilling or using a cast iron skillet with ridges, make cross hatches by placing filet on surface for about 4 minutes, then turning the filet 45 degrees on the same side. 
  • Flip filet over and repeat.  This should achieve a medium rare filet.


Chef’s Note:  Remember that different thicknesses will determine cooking time.  If filet is really thick, you may want to grill mark it and then finish cooking in the oven.  Medium rare reaches about 135 degrees internally.
