Suya-Dusted Filet Mignon

  • Pat steaks dry with paper towels and liberally season with salt and ground black pepper on both sides.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, add canola oil and bring to medium-high heat.
  • Place filets in cast iron pan and sear for 3 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, flip steaks and add butter, garlic clove, and thyme to pan. Baste steaks with butter for about 30 seconds and allow filets to finish cooking for another 3-4 minutes for medium rare doneness. Refer to Omaha Steaks cooking chart if you prefer cooked to a different doneness.
  • Rest filets for 7 to 8 minutes. Serve steaks over “red rice” risotto and sprinkle suya dust over filets.
