Will be doing beef fillets for the fist time. Did a lot of ribeyes.  The clergy is coming over for dinner--since he bought it.
What are your go to temps for rare,just warm in the middle and medium rare to just not quite pink?
I sliced them about 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 ".

    They'll need to rest in foil or covered for about 5min or so.  We pull them around 125.  They go into a preheated Al pan with melted (we don't worry with clarified) butter in the pan and cover for 5-10 min while plates are getting prepared and wine being poured (refilled).

    Sear can either be first or reverse depending on your preference.

    All the best.
