Directions:
In bowl, combine sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Pat the steaks dry. Sprinkle both sides of each steak lightly but evenly with the sugar mixture. Set aside.
Place the oil in a large skillet, preferably cast-iron, and place it over high heat until wisps of smoke appear. Watch it carefully. Using oven mitts, carefully tilt the skillet to evenly coat the surface with oil.
Add the steaks to the skillet, being careful not to crowd them. Sear the filets, without touching, for 3 minutes. Using tongs, gently turn the steaks. The crust should be blackened but not burnt. Continue to cook, without touching for 3 minutes for rare, 5 to 7 for medium-rare. Transfer the filets to a cutting board. Set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes prior to serving.
