Grilled Filet Mignon with Mint and Parsley. A perfectly grilled lean cut of beef is simply seasoned, grilled and served with a sauce of fresh herbs, mint and parsley.
As summer and grilling season draws to a close, I thought I would see it out in style with one of the best cuts of beef. Today also happens to be National Filet Mignon day, so there’s no better way to celebrate.
This fine cut of beef doesn’t need a lot of help in the flavor department. I didn’t over season, marinate or anything to take away from the great quality of the meat. There’s a couple of tips to make these steaks shine.
Firstly, leave them out at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking. If the meat was cold it would tighten up from the temperature change, kind of like we would do. This you can do with all meat. Secondly, just a good coating of salt and freshly ground black pepper. My filets were a good 2 inches thick, so I gave them a good coating on each side, since theres a lot of meat to season.
Because the filet deserves to let it’s own flavor shine through, I didn’t want to overpower it with any heavy sauces, so I chose a fresh flavored chopped mint and parsley.
This sauce is also called chimichurri, which is a very popular, uncooked sauce from Argentina. This sauce includes the use garlic, but I omitted it as I want all the fresh flavors to shine through and raw garlic will overpower the steak. The mint and parsley are a lovely refreshing complement to the meat.

2- 6 ounce filet mignon
1 cup large mint leaves
3/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Freshly ground black pepper
- Remove the filets from the fridge and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Preheat grill.
- Add mint and parsley, vinegar, salt and pepper to a food processor. Pulse until the herbs are chopped. With the food processor running, drizzle in the olive oil until smooth.
- Season the filets liberally on both sides with salt and pepper.
- Grill the filets on high for about 5 minutes for medium rare, no touching or moving to get a good sear. Cook a little longer for medium. I don't recommend any longer. Flip the steak and repeat.
- Remove the filets from the grill and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes.
- Once they have rested, slice thin and spoon over the mint and parsley.
