Peppered Filet Mignon with Dijon Mayonnaise

Today is Joey's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!) and what goes better when celebrating then pepper on meat? Joe picked up some steak from a local butcher and dear lord were they ever good. So tender and juicy. The price was excellent too, less than what we would have spent at the grocery store.

Pepper Added by Joey - NONE! Yippppppeeeeeee

1/2 cup mayo
5 cloves of garlic, roasted
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
4 filet mignon steaks
2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon salt

1. In a bowl stir together mayo and roasted garlic (I pressed mine after roasting it), olive oil, mustard and lemon juice. Set aside.
2. Sprinkle filets on both sides with black pepper and salt. Press the pepper so the sticks to the meat.
3. Grill beef over medium high heat until it is cooked to your desired taste.
4. Allow meat to rest after removing it from the grill.
5. Top each filet with the dijon mayonnaise.
