Seared and Oven-Baked Filet Mignon with GiGi

GiGi Filet Mignon with Caesar Salad

Say it with us in a fancy accent: “filet mignon!” One more time, everyone: “filet mignon!”

Don’t you feel fancy now? This high-end cut is also grass-fed and grass-finished, boosting nutrient quantities and contributing to soil biodiversity and grassland sustainability. Impress your friends with that (and your cooking skills)! Remember to keep a close eye on the temperature because grass-fed meat is leaner than grain-fed and cooks quicker. 

GiGi pairs this filet mignon with a dairy-free caesar salad and crispy butternut squash croutons. Without further ado, let’s get into the recipe!
