Slow Roasted Filet Mignon (Paleo + Whole30)

At first I was intimidated when making my first filet.  I was afraid to overcook it, or serve it for a dinner party and find it to raw just as we are sitting down to eat.  This slow cook approach is my fool proof version and creates a juicy and tender meat that everyone is sure to love!  I love serving it along side roasted sweet potatoes and some sautéed string beans with almonds!
