This month is about budget-conscious meals. The next several recipes will focus on seven ingredients or fewer - not including the basics that every kitchen should have such as water, salt and pepper, butter and the like.  This recipe is an easy recipe using the cast-iron skillet we first started with at the beginning of the year. By now it will be well-seasoned and ready to assist in this deliciously easy recipe. I prefer small cuts of filet mignon to prepare this dish, but a ribeye or sirloin will work just as well.
