Perfectly Pan-Seared Filet Mignon with Espresso Sea Salt. Super tender and cooked to perfection. The perfect dinner for Mother’s Day!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Snake River Farms/Double R Ranch. The opinions and text are all mine.
Mother’s Day is almost a week away and I’ve got the perfect dinner menu to celebrate. I teamed up with Snake River Farms/Double R Ranch to bring you a Mother’s Day Bundle using high quality American Kobe Beef and Kurobuta Ham. A perfect dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day.
The steaks are beautifully marbled, tender and so flavorful. They were one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The ham is super easy to prepare and is already pre-cooked.
The trick to cooking the perfect steak is to first sear the meat in a super hot pan and then to finish cooking it in the oven until your desired temperature. I typically sear the meat for a couple of minutes on each side and then finish in the oven.
A couple tips for cooking the perfect steak:
- Bring to room temperature: I always like to bring my steak to room temperature before cooking. This allows the steak to cook more evenly.
- Give your steak time to rest: After cooking allow the steak to rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes. This will help the steak retain moisture and juices.
- Flipping your steak: If you try to turn your steak and it sticks to the pan then the steak is not ready to flip yet. Wait until the steak releases on it’s on.
Pan-Seared Ribeye Filets with Espresso Sea Salt
- 2 American Kobe Ribeye Filets 6 ounces each
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- sprinkle of Espresso Brava Sea Salt
- sprinkle of pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Meanwhile, bring the steaks to room temperature. Season with espresso sea salt and pepper.
- Add olive oil to an oven safe pan. (Cast iron would work well for this.)
- When the pan is nice and hot add in the steaks. Sear for 4 minutes on each side and then place in the oven.
- Cook until your desired temperature 5-10 minutes. For medium you want your steak to be an internal temperature of 130 degrees.
