Everyone is always so intrigued by the mundane details of the rich and famous. What do they wear? Where do they live? What do they eat? Billionaire Beef gives you a little taste of their luxury and the answer to the last question. A hearty cut of rosy, tender beef is simply seared in butter and then roasted to perfection in the oven. Billionaire Beef proves that not everything extravagant is complicated, which might not always prove to be true for the lives of the rich and famous... but it can certainly be true for your kitchen!


• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter • 2 (8-ounce) beef tenderloins or filet mignon steaks • 2 teaspoons kosher salt • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Step 2

Add the butter to a small cast-iron skillet that is just slightly bigger than the steaks on high heat.

Step 3

Season the steaks all over with the salt and pepper.

Step 4

Sear the steaks on each side until browned, about 3 minutes each.

Step 5

Carefully place the seared steaks, still in the skillet, into the oven and cook until a thermometer inserted into the center reaches the desired doneness, 125 degrees F and about 4 minutes for rare, 140 degrees F and about 5-6 minutes for medium, and 160 degrees F and about 7-10 minutes for well done.

Step 6

Transfer the cooked steaks from the oven and place them on a plate covered with foil. Allow the steaks to rest for 10 minutes.
