I joke often with my husband about how we really love filet mignon but we seriously serve it on paper plates…we are just that fancy!
I guess I always thought filet mignon is something you have on date nights or at a fancy restaurant but you can make it at home and serve it on your fanciest plates or on paper plates, it’s still just as good.
If you like steak, you may also enjoy this Ninja Foodi Steak Wrapped Asparagus too, it uses the air fryer function but could also be grilled too.
How long should you grill filet mignon in the Ninja Foodi Grill?
For this recipe, the filet mignon is grilled on high in the Ninja Foodi Grill for 5-7 minutes. This will vary depending on what doneness you prefer.
Typically, 145*F is the temperature for a medium-rare steak and then 160*F is for medium-well. We like to stick to closer to 7 minutes and get the internal temperature up to 160*F.
When using the Ninja Foodi Grill, you will set the grill temperature and time, and then it will preheat for about 5 minutes before adding the filet mignon. This means the total cook time will be closer to 10-14 minutes.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Grilled Filet Mignon:
Seasoning the steak is key to get some great flavor, we prefer to use Kansas City Steak Seasoning for our steaks but your favorite seasoning will do. I also like to season the steaks, then set them out in the fridge for a few hours to just really get that seasoning soaked into the steaks.
When you place the filet mignon on the grill, you can spray the grill with a high heat spray. Personally, we use Olive Oil Cooking Spray, but if you prefer a higher smoke point, use Grapeseed or Coconut Oil Spray. I really like all the different oils from Pompeian, you can get a variety there.
I’ve been using their oils for years and the sprays are great for the Ninja Foodi.
Once you place the filet mignon on the grill, you can then let it cook for about 2-3 minutes or until your desired doneness on one side and flip it until it’s cooked to your preferred temperature.
Ninja Foodi Grilled Filet Mignon is wonderful with Ninja Foodi Lobster Tail and it can be cooked at the same time too.
