Montreal Style Beef Carpaccio

Montreal Style Beef Carpaccio

This recipe is sure to be a hit! It’s easy and so tasty that I’ve eaten it dozens of times for Sunday night family dinner. I can’t get enough of it (and neither can my family 😉)!

Servings: 4 to 6

Prep: 20 minutes

Resting time: 60 minutes



  • 600g tartare-grade filet mignon, trimmed
  • 2-3 oz House of BBQ Experts Montreal Spice Mix and Rub
  • 2 tbsp. of butter
  • ⅓ cup of shaved Romano cheese
  • ⅓  cup of olive oil
  • 1 ½ cup of watercress
  • Zest of one orange
  • Balsamic glaze, to taste
  • Finishing salt, to taste


  1. Preheat the BBQ to the highest temperature setting.
  2. Meanwhile, coat the filet mignon with the House of BBQ Experts Montreal Spice Mix and Rub and heat a cast-iron skillet on the BBQ until it’s piping hot.
  3. Add the butter to the skillet and let it melt with a drizzle of olive oil. Sear the meat for about 30 to 60 seconds on each side, until the dry rub forms a crust on the meat. 
  4. Let the filet mignon cool, wrap it in plastic wrap and freeze it for 45 to 60 minutes (it will then be easier to slice it).
  5. Slice the meat as thinly as possible and lay the slices on the bottom of the serving plate. (If you have a meat slicer, use it for a more consistent look).
  6. Garnish the meat with a few watercress leaves, Romano shavings and orange zest. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic glaze on top, then lightly sprinkle some finishing salt.
  7. Eat and savor every bite!

Happy grilling!
