How to Grill Filet Mignon to Perfection

3.34 from 6 votes


  • 1 1/2 " thick 8 oz. Filet Mignon steaks whatever quantity necessary for your party size
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • Dehydrated garlic
  • Dried rosemary


  • Remove filet mignon from the refrigerator and pat dry. Trim away any connective tissue around the edges of the meat.
  • Drizzle both sides of filet with Worcestershire sauce and liberally season with salt, pepper, dehydrated garlic and dried rosemary. Allow to rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Turn burners for one half side of a gas grill to high and leave the other side of the grill burners off.
  • Once the internal grill temperature has reached about 450 degrees F, place the steaks on the hot, direct heat side of the gas grill. Grill for 3 minutes then rotate 1/4 turn (to get those pretty hatch grill marks). Grill for another 3 minutes then flip. Grill for another 5 minutes on the other side and then move to indirect heat.
  • Cook filets over indirect heat until they have reached about 5 degrees below the desired cooking temperature (they will continue to cook slightly even once removed from the grill).
  • Remove filets from the grill and tent lightly in tin foil for about 5- 8 minutes. As mouthwatering as they will look and smell, resist the urge to cut right in as those juices you worked for will spill right out.
