Here is the correct way to sear a piece of meat - very easy! I didn't do any of it - my sister did it all!
Start with your meat. This is filet mignon (from a cow - that is why it is so big)
Put a little olive oil in a pan and get it hot (not burn the meat hot but hot enough to get it brown)
Sear - cook for a short time on high on both sides. Then turn down and cook to your favorite done-ness.
Cut and serve. We ate the filet with a salad and some sauteed mushrooms.
Easy, right? All you need is a little olive oil and some filet mignon!
