Baste intermittently with the oil-butter.
I hate the cold weather but I love a perfectly-cooked filet mignon so I learned a long time ago how to make them indoors. Still feeling like you can take it further? Rare registers at a temperature of 125 degrees while medium rare will be at 135 degrees. Sear 2-3 minutes on both sides, constantly spooning the hot butter onto the steaks, and only turn once after they get nicely browned.
