Recipe — Maple Spice BBQ Filet Mignon
Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4-6 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1 800-g (1 3/4-lbs) beef filet (ask your butcher for a midsection cut)
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar
  • 3 tablespoons steak seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Baste your BBQ grill with vegetable oil and preheat to high.
  2. Mix maple sugar, spices, Worcestershire sauce and oil in a bowl. Roll the meat in the sauce mixture.
  3. Brown the meat on the BBQ giving it a quarter turn every two minutes for beautiful grill markings.
  4. Once browned, reduce heat to the minimum setting, close the grill cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, turning the meat once more halfway through. Use a meat thermometer for the perfect doneness. For rare meat, the temperature should be at 60 °C (140 °F), for medium, 68 °C (155 °F), and for meat that’s well done, 77 °C (170 °F).
  5. Remove from heat, loosely cover with aluminum foil and let rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Oven method

  1. Preheat oven to 160 °C (325 °F).
  2. Season the filet mignon in the same way as for the BBQ method.
  3. Heat an oven proof pan over medium high. Sear the filet well on all sides.
  4. Place in oven and roast uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes for each 450 g (1 lb) of meat, until the desired doneness is obtained (see doneness temperatures above).
  5. Remove from oven, loosely cover with aluminum foil and let rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Serve with steamed vegetables and a lovely potato mash.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
