For breakfast I made this Mignon to go with our omelet for a super fancy version of Steak and Eggs! It was a great way to start the day after staying up till 2 in the morning. After waking up late and really hungry we needed something to power us through the day. I stepped outside to start up the sprinklers but we were having such nice weather I decided to fire up the grill. I've made this same Mignon with a garlic paste for dinner but never would have thought it would work so well for brunch. It was just what we needed to get our tummies full for a wonderful day together!

2 Fillet Mignon
1/2 tsp essence
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
2 pinches of kosher salt
2-3 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Preheat grill to medium high.

In a small bowl crush garlic with fork, sprinkle salt over garlic and crush salt into garlic to form paste. Add olive oil and mix well.

Add seasonings to room temperature steak and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Sear steaks on both sides for 2-3 minutes and then lower heat to medium and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Remove from grill and let sit 5 minutes before spooning paste over steaks and serving.
