Filet Mignon with Blackberry, Chive, & Parmesean Butter

INGREDIENTS

    For the butter:

  • 1 stick of butter, softened to room temperature
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 8 California Giant blackberries, finely chopped
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • 3 tsp thinly sliced chives
  • ¼ cup finely grated parmesan
  • For the steaks:

  • 2 filet mignons - about 1 ½ inches thick (the thicker it is, the longer it cooks in the oven)
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 T canola oil

DIRECTIONS

      • Remove filets from fridge and let temper at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.
      • In a small bowl, mash together all butter ingredients except for chives until well incorporated. Fold in the chives at the end.
      • Using a small sheet of parchment, spoon the butter into a log shaped and wrap tightly with the paper and twist the ends to secure (think like the wrapper of a jolly rancher).
      • Let butter chill in fridge until set.
      • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
      • Meanwhile, preheat a cast iron pan or ovenproof skillet over high heat until super hot.
      • Season the steaks GENEROUSLY on both sides with kosher salt and pepper
      • Add canola oil and to the pan and allow to warm
      • Add steaks and allow to sear on each side for 2 ½ minutes or until a night golden crust has formed!
      • Place the pan with the steaks into the oven and allow to cook for another 5 minutes or until slightly firm when you squeeze the sides of the steaks (don’t want hard or else will over cook, but don’t want super bouncy or will be rare).
      • Remove steaks from oven and LET REST (I promise, this is an important step to let the steak finish cooking and retain its juices) with a giant pad of blackberry butter on top for 5 minutes.
      • Sprinkle a pinch of coarse sea salt and extra chives on top and serve!
      • **If you have a grill, you can certainly grill the steaks instead of on the stovetop.
