Ingredients:

1 tbsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp coriander

1/4 cup ground espresso

1/2 cup unsalted butter, divided

1/2 cup cooking oil (canola or light olive oil), divided

4 8oz each tenderloin steaks/filet mignons

1 tbsp Maldon Salt (for finishing)

Directions:

  • Combine dry ingredients reserving salt for later. Pour onto a small plate or saucer.
  • Take each steak and "dip" the cut/ flat end into the seasoning mixture. Turn the steak over and repeat so both sides are well seasoned. Repeat procedure for each steak.
  • Preheat skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook each steak separately, according to the following directions:
  • Add 1 Tbsp. of butter and 1 Tbsp. of oil to the pan. Once the butter has melted place your steak seasoned side down, in the pan. There will be some smoke.
  • After 3-4 minutes, add another Tbsp. of butter and a Tbsp. of oil to the pan and turn the steak.
  • Cook another 3-4 minutes on this side for a nice Medium Rare. Again, there will be some smoke.
  • Remove from pan, let rest a few moments before slicing. Finish with a sprinkle of a nice sea salt.
