Skillet Filet Mignons

We had a delicious dinner tonight…filet mignons with feta cheese and kalamata olives, green beans with garlic and mushrooms, and twice-baked potatoes.
Here’s the recipe for the filets. We like to purchase those little filet mignons from the butcher, and then cook them indoors in a cast iron skillet. The skillet makes them crunchy on the outside, and deliciously tender inside:
Cast Iron Skillet Filet Mignons
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2-4 1-1/2″ thick filet mignon steaks
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
5-6 kalamata olives, chopped
Combine garlic powder, basil, oregano, and salt. Stir in freshly ground black pepper. Rub mixture on the steaks.
Heat a heavy cast iron skillet on high until hot. Add oil. Place steaks in oil and cook 10-14-minutes or to desired doneness, turning once. Place on plates; sprinkle with lemon juice, top with cheese and olives and serve.
