Blackberries lighten up the rich butter on top of the grilled filets in this Filet Mignon with Blackberry, Chive, & Parmesan Butter recipe. You can even serve this butter on warm bread as an appetizer.

Filet Mignon with Blackberry, Chive, & Parmesean Butter


    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 teaspoons 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, to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


      • 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 2½ 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 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.
