Grilling is what we do from Memorial Day to Labor Day. And who doesn’t love a great smoky steak hot off the grill? I’m a Texan with rancher roots, who comes with a lot of experience in the grilling arena. But I have also learned tricks from the best chefs over the years. All experience combined, here is my favorite way to get my beef on.
- 1 Tbsp mustard
- 2 Tbsp dried Herbs de Provence or Thyme
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp sea salt
- 2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
- 4 fillet mignon steaks
- Put the mustard, thyme, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix to combine. Rub the mixture over the steaks and set aside for 30 minutes to marinate.
- Preheat barbecue to medium heat.
- Grilling time: For a 1-inch cut, grill 10 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) or 12 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degrees F).
- Slice and serve with your favorite side. We like a bit of sauteed greens. Top with extra salt and cannabutter if desired!
- Serves 4.
