Oven Roasted Filet Mignon with Garlic Butter

Oven Roasted Filet of Beef

Adapted from Barefoot Contessa

 

Ingredients

1 whole filet of beef (4 to 5 pounds), trimmed and tied

2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature

2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Place the beef on a baking sheet and pat the outside dry with a paper towel. In a small bowl mix together the garlic and the butter and spread the butter on the meat with your hands. Sprinkle evenly with the salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for exactly 22 minutes for rare and 25 minutes for medium-rare. 

Remove the beef from the oven, cover it tightly with aluminum foil, and allow it to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes. Remove the strings and slice the filet thickly.
