I think the best way to prepare a filet is with a cast-iron skillet and an oven. First I sear the meat on the stovetop to give it a nice crust, and then I finish the steak in the oven. The results are a more tender and juicy steak than any I have had off

4 filet mignons, cut 1 1/4-inches thick each

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 shallot, peeled and finely minced

1/4 cup brandy

1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard

1/2 cup heavy cream

Freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 395 degrees.

Pat the beef dry with paper towels. Generously season the beef with salt. Evenly press the coarse pepper on both flat sides of the filets. In a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil until a few droplets of water sizzle when carefully

Pour all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the skillet. Add the shallots and sauté over medium heat until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the brandy and simmer, uncovered until the liquor has almost evaporated, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the mustard and heavy cream.
