My husband just raved over this (he told me to save this recipe). He said it was the best steak I've ever cooked and I have to agree. Your instructions were spot on and I followed them to the minute. Wonderful filets tender, juicy and just the med rare that we like them. The butter mix on top just added to the great taste. I would say to anyone looking at this recipe do not deviate from the instructions and you will have a memorable meal. Thank you, thank you. -- Nina

Really tasty. The lemon-herb butter adds a nice layer. I will be making this again, but wraped in bacon.

Best steak ever! I found this recipe on pinterest originally, after my daughter ranted and raved about the steak dinner she made - i decided to give it a try! I even went out and bought a cast iron skillet, as i have searched high and low for the perfect steak recipe and did not want to improvise in any way. It was well worth it! This TRULY is THE BEST steak ive eaten outside of any high rated steakhouse restaurants. I will only make my steaks this way at home from now on! Thanks for sharing gailanng! Next time i make this ill be sure to post a picture!

This was fabulous!!! I made this for dinner for my husband's and my date night (in-house due to weather) and we both thought it was phenomenal. The only thing I would do differently is perhaps not use any lemon in the butter. I didn't even use the full amount and I just thought it took away from the flavor. But then again, I'm not a huge fan of lemon, so keep that in mind! I do not have a cast iron skillet, but used a grill pan that can be used in the oven. Definitely use fresh herbs, they make all the difference. I'd never made compound butter before, but won't hesitate to again. Super easy! I served with roasted fingerling potatoes. Will definitely make this again. YUM!

Oh my gosh - I love this recipe! I've never been a great steak cooker and was looking for a recipe that really treated a filet mignon cut like it deserved. This is it!<br/><br/>I followed the recipe to the letter. The only thing I will change next time is to use less pepper (probably half).<br/><br/>By the way, rather than finish these in the oven, I used my grill as an oven by placing the pan on top of a ring that allowed my pan to be about 2" off the grill grates. Worked well. Thank you gailanng for a great recipe!<br/>-

VERY good. My boyfriend thought the garlic in the compound was a little overpowering, but I enjoyed it. I took ours out at 120º and let sit for 5 minutes to come to 125º as we like ours rare.
