The Absolute Best Ways To Reheat Filet Mignon
Due to its highly tender consistency, the filet mignon is a popular choice and one of the most expensive items on the menu at steakhouses. Reheating a leftover filet is quite simple, and there are many ways to do it.
To reheat in an oven, cook the filet at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, usually about 30 minutes for inch-and-a-half-thick steaks, until it reaches an internal temperature of 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the filet from the oven, pat the surface dry, and sear it in a heated, cooking it for about 60 to 90 seconds on each side.
Another way to reheat a filet is the steaming method, and this is done by steaming the filet in a skillet with water, extra juices, or beef stock. Then add some oil to a pan and heat it on medium-high, pat the steak dry, and place it into a hot pan for searing.
A quick and easy reheating method is by using a microwave. Put the filet into a microwave-safe container and add any leftover juices or some beef stock to help keep it from drying out (via My Chicago Steak), then cover the container with a microwave-safe lid or with plastic wrap, and microwave at half power for 30-second increments until it is just warmed.
Using an air fryer is another super-fast way to reheat leftover filet mignon. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, place the filet directly into the basket and cook for roughly three to five minutes; then, once it's finished, remove the filet from the air fryer and let it rest five minutes while covered in foil.
