Pan Seared Filet Mignon with Asparagus

Filet mignon is truly the king of meats, and as such, we tend to feel that less really is more. We’ve highlighted this sumptuous cut with fresh garlic, and paired it with asparagus for a steak that positively oozes luxury even before you take a bite. On sale this week at Oliver’s is our Choice Filet Mignon and fresh Organic Asparagus. Easy and impressive, treat the mom in your life to a  meal that is a cut above!


  • Serves: 2 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 8 ounce Oliver’s Choice Filet Mignon
  • 12 spears Organic Asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Rub sea salt onto all the sides of the steak.

  2. Heat a cast iron pan on a high flame on the stovetop, and then add one tablespoon of olive oil; you want the steak to start searing as soon as it hits the pan. Place the steak on the pan and allow it to cook for about 4 minutes per inch thick, per side, for medium, eight minutes for well done. When the steak is done cooking, transfer it to a plate, cover the plate with foil and let the steak rest 5 minutes.

  3. While the steak is resting, add the last tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, and then add the asparagus on a lower flame. Add salt and let the asparagus cook for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Give them a squirt of the lemon juice and add the garlic halfway through.

  4. Plate the filet mignon and top with the asparagus and garlic.
