As tender as beef filet is, it really isn't as flavorful as more marbled cuts like the sirloin or strip. Grilling your filet is a great way to remedy that. Be sure not to overcook it though, as the ensuing toughness willl undo any gains in flavor you got by grilling. A good meat thermometer is your friend here.

The quick caramelization that this technique creates on the filet gives you a tasty brown crust, while some time in the oven lets the filet cook through without drying out. These "cute" filets are not to be taken lightly, but are easy to prepare with a simple pan-roasting.
