Special occasion at home? No problem! I’m walking you through How to Grill Filet Mignon, and it’s so much simpler than you might think.


  • 1 (8oz) filet mignon 
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Prior to grilling, take the filet out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature for 30-45 minutes. Preheat your grill to 400 degrees over medium/high heat. 
  2. Mix together the salt and pepper and sprinkle all sides of the filet with the mixture, pressing the spices into the meat. You don’t have to use all of the salt and pepper, just enough to lightly and evenly coat the filet. 
  3. Spray your grill before adding the filet. Cook for 6-7 minutes on each side for medium rare. If your filet is very thick it might need a couple more minutes per side. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting.
