    Jezski's Note:

    This is a method, not a recipe. I posted this in answer to a forum request from Bobbie #3. She was pleased with the way it worked and suggested the method might be a help to others. I have no clue as to where I picked up these directions. NOTE: Zaar insists on an ingredients list. Please disregard and just do your own thing. This is a METHOD, not a recipe.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 steaks
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • salt and pepper
    • other seasoning, to your taste


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a medium skillet, heat the canola oil until it is very hot.
    3. 3
      A cast iron frying pan, if you have one, works particularly well.
    4. 4
      Season the filets with salt and pepper on both sides.
    5. 5
      Sauté the filets briefly on each side in the hot oil, about 1 minute per side. Just get them nice and brown.
    6. 6
      Place the pan with the filets directly into the oven and roast for about 5-7 minutes for medium rare.
    7. 7
      Type of steak, oil, seasonings and degree of doneness are all up to your individual taste.

      Jezski (Janet), Thanks for rescuing me with this cooking method. I had heard steaks could be browned and finished off in the oven -- but had no clue what the steps were. Your instructions were perfect -- and our filets were the best EVER!!!! I had very, very thick steaks and just knew I couldn't cook them the way we liked if I tried to do it all on the stove top. The steaks were a nice rich brown on the outside, but still pink and oh, so moist on the inside. I did use unsalted butter to brown the steaks in -- because that's what the recipe called for. There is also a sauce that is cooked after the steaks are done to serve over the meat. The skillet had such wonderful drippings and made the sauce better than it's ever been before. Thank you again for answering my "cry for help" in the Forum -- and a huge thank you for posting your cooking method for others to try.

      Great steak! Hey, I hear that cigars pair well with a proper steak and fine cognac. But I'm thinking more along the lines of a Snicker's bars and a Margarita.

      Excellent! I used butter. When it was done, I sauteed garlic in the pan drippings and put on top of steak. So delicious!
