My favorite way to cook a filet as you get in fine restaurants is to cook it on the stove and finish it in the oven. If you cook your filets like this once, you will never put a steak on the grill again. Save your grill for the BBQ and hamburgers! I promise you, it is the most delicious and best way to cook a steak. Cook this for your family or friends, and they will be so impressed!
This espresso rub gives the steak a wonderful crust, and you can also use it on any cut of steak you like.
When I mix up my rub, I throw all the ingredients in a container with a lid and shake it well. I like to triple this recipe and keep it on hand because I use it often.
Sprinkle both sides of the filet with the rub and rub in well.
Sear the steak on the sides to brown also.
