Grilling Instructions

Filet Mignon Grilling Instructions For Preheated Gas Grill Or Red-hot Charcoal
  • Bring thawed steaks to room temperature. Sprinkle generously with our Kansas City Steak Original Steak Seasoning.
  • Sear steaks over maximum heat: on a charcoal grill, sear 1 minute each side; on a gas grill, sear 2 minutes each side, then reduce heat to medium.
  • Move steaks to indirect heat and continue grilling using times based on thickness: on a charcoal grill 10 to 14 minutes if 1” thick or 14 to 18 minutes if 1½” thick; on a gas grill 11 to 15 minutes if 1” thick or 16 to 20 minutes if 1½” thick.
  • Remove from grill 10°F before desired doneness and allow meat to rest 10 minutes before serving. Juices will be absorbed into the meat and bring meat up to desired temperature.
