Filet Mignon


I found a couple of filets on sale when I went veggie shopping for salsa, so we had those for dinner tonight.

I usually cut the asparagus bottoms off, but you can do the snap method too.



They are expensive, so I like to get my moneys worth by slicing a little more off the bottom parts to put into omelets or stir fry!



Heat the cast iron pan on high and cook! I like to get my asparagus a little blackened so I put the spears inbetween the raised bars (mine isn't the flat kind) for more surface area.

Once they were done I put the steaks on, 5-6 minutes a side for medium rare on high heat (the cast iron stays smoking hot forever) they were super thick so maybe closer to 6-7 mins a side.

I was so hungry I forgot to take pictures of our dinner plates I grabbed mine walked into the room and started eating immediately! Figures right? So I give you a drawn plate that greatly resembled the finished product:
Thanks for reading!

  3. That is too funny! Love asparagus. Now is a great time to get it. Love steak also. I don't own a cast iron pan. I know they are the best for holding the heat.
