Filet Au Poivre

I enjoy grilling in the summer...and love my Wolf grill for indoor wintertime grilling.   This incantation required a bit of a different method.   For this, I use my Lodge Cast Iron Skillet.   It helps to keep the peppercorns attached.  

As a sure your oven is 500F! for at least twenty minutes.

Filet  Au Poivre

Blog Recipe, Meats

2  filet Mignon; bacon wrapped & room temp
3 tb peppercorns; cracked
2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup red wine
2 tablespoon brandy
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 500 F. convection, if available.

Crack peppercorns between heavy plastic with a heavy mallet or rolling pin.  Brush each filet with a little oil and then press peppercorns on each side.
Heat cast iron skillet until smoking hot. Add oil and 1/2 the butter, stirring until butter is melted. Add steak and sear for 2 minutes on each side.

Place skillet in oven and continue cooking 8 minutes.   This should produce medium rare.  Roast for ten minutes for medium.

Place steak on warm platter. Add butter, red wine, brandy and salt. Simmer while stirring a few minutes. Pour over steak and serve immediately. Sautéed mushrooms also are a great side addition.

Mr. Bill,
I have not had the cast irons out for some time but I think this recipe could entice me to drag them out in the next day or so :) and I am not sure which I am more interested in trying out, the filet or the sauce. I to, am looking forward to grilling seasons, but then again I have been known to stand out in the middle of a snow storm and grill (lol). - G
