Firehouse Steak Recipe


  • 2 filet mignon steaks, about 6-8 oz. each, 1¼” to 2″ inches thick
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • Sunbelt 5 Pepper Sea Salt (or just use salt and pepper)
  • Oven-proof stainless-steel sauté pan
Tips to Sear a Steak


  • Most firehouse kitchens have black iron skillets – it may sear a little hotter since black iron skillets are thicker and holds on to the heat better when you put the steaks on.
  • If you want to get fancy you can heat up a plate in the oven and melt some butter to make it sizzle like the steak houses do when plating the steak. Just make sure the plate material can stand the heat.
  • Always protect your hands from the heat when handling pan handles and hot plates.
  • A  thermometer from www.meater.com is a sure way to trust what temperature your steaks are cooking.
  • This recipe works well with other cuts of beef and can be adjusted to the thickness of your cut.


  • Prior to cooking, allow your filets to come to room temperature by placing them on the counter for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • After the filets have achieved room temperature, generously season the top and bottom surfaces with Sunbelt 5 Pepper Sea Salt. Be sure to gently press the seasoning down into the meat so it adheres and be sure to season the sides. Set aside.
  • Over medium-high heat begin heating up the sauté pan. Add the avocado oil and let it get hot. Get it hot enough to see the smoke. Very important to getting the first side seared. Adjust for gas versus electric cook top. Gas seems to get hotter quicker.
  • Add the filets to the pan and let cook undisturbed for 4 minutes. It is extremely important to not move the filets around in the pan during this time to ensure they are getting the perfect sear. Once timer ends, flip the filets over and immediately transfer the pan to the preheated oven. The filets will simultaneously sear on the second side while cooking in the center.
  • Cook the filets in the oven for 5-8 minutes, depending on your preferred level of doneness. 5-6 minutes for rare, 6-7 minutes for medium rare or 7-8 minutes for medium. We recommend using a digital thermometer to read temperatures and get your steak just like you want it.
  • Carefully remove the pan from your oven and transfer the filets to a clean plate and tent them with foil. Let rest for 5-7 minutes. You can place a little butter on each steak for more taste.
  • Transfer the filets to serving plates, spooning any residual over top and serve immediately. Enjoy!
