Steakhouse Filets

Steakhouse Filets

This is my Mom's favorite way to make steaks.  She raves about these steaks all the time.  We finally got a chance to try them a few weeks ago when we went down for a football game.  I must admit, the steaks were fabulous!  She marinated the steaks for a few hours in Dale's before she cooked them in an iron skillet.  

This method is perfect for a weeknight treat.  Chicken Legs will appreciate this method if once the weather cools off and he doesn't have to stand out in the cold to grill steak.

the steaks smelled so good - they were driving Max CRAZY!

  1. Yum - BEEF, luv it.... You know I've been enjoying your chicken recipes, but I think I told you I preferred cow over bird.

  2. I haven't tried them on an iron skillet - we have just started cooking mostly on iron - will have to try this! They look yummy - ps I linked to you today for a Versatile Blogger Award - thanks for making cooking fun! :)

  3. You know I prefer my steaks on a hot cast iron grill grate, but these look good Steph. I've actually done them like this a few times. Shhh! Don't tell, I'll get my BBQ card revoked.

    Poor Max.

  4. Don't let those tasty bits in the pan go to waste. Put the skillet back on the burner, and pour about a half a cup of red wine in it to deglaze it. Once the wine has reduced a little, add a pad of butter and a few shallots or green onions. Stir it all together for a minute or two, then drizzle over your steak or use it as a dipping sauce. The whole process can be done in a matter of minutes while your steaks rest. When I do this, I also rub the olive oil on the steaks to try avoid access oil in the pan, as you don't want a greasy sauce.

  5. Nothing better than a great filet! Your post says "She marinated the steaks for a few hours in Dale's before she cooked them" but I don't see info on that in your recipe. Can you elaborate, please? :) Thanks!

    1. Just pour the Dale's marinade on the steaks and put them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them. Are you familiar with Dale's?

  6. I just ordered the Dale's Seasoning from Amazon and can't wait to try this. My mouth is literally watering like a faucet right now. Can you tell me what cut of meat you use?
