You will need:

  • grilling basketGrilling Basket
  • olive oilOlive Oil
  • kosher saltKosher Salt
  • black pepperBlack Pepper


  1. First, preheat your grill to high heat to ensure a good sear on your steaks.
  2. Next, brush both sides of the filet mignon with olive oil. This will help the seasoning stick to the steak and prevent it from sticking to the grilling basket.
  3. Season the steaks generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. This simple seasoning enhances the natural flavors of the steak.
  4. Place the steaks in the grilling basket. This tool will help you handle the steaks on the grill without losing any pieces through the grates.
  5. Grill the steaks for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Adjust the cooking time according to your preferred level of doneness. Remember, the steaks will continue to cook a bit more after they're removed from the grill.
  6. Finally, remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the steak, resulting in a more flavorful and juicy bite.


For the best results, let your steaks come to room temperature before grilling. And always rest your steaks after grilling for maximum juiciness and flavor.
