  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Toss the crabmeat in the melted and cooled butter. Set aside until ready to serve.
  2. Pat filets mignons dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot, but not smoking. Brown filets on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer filets to an oiled baking pan and roast in the middle of the preheated oven until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Top each filet with the crabmeat and butter mixture.

The crabmeat was a total miss for me. It was way too much crab for the amount of steak and too little butter to flavor the crab. I made a sauce for the asparagus I served with it from this sit...

Really great idea, and a great starting point that you can build on! I used imitation crab meath, and I've also tried it with imitation lobster meat. It's delicious either way! I also like to...

It was really good. I added a garlic powder mixture to the steak seasoning and that turned out really well. However you do not need 16 oz of crab. 8 oz would have been much better.

Made this for valentine's day and it was a huge success! It looks very fancy but is quite easy to make. I was able to get frozen King crab legs at the grocery store. I also mixed in a little gar...

A little more butter melted, fresh clove garlic minced, and Old Bay seasoning with real KING crab meat, oh so good!! I like the MR warm through the center steak in the oven!
