Heat heavy, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place Filets in skillet and brown 2 minutes; turn Filets over and place skillet into preheated oven.
Cook's Tip: If oven-safe skillet is not available, transfer browned Filets to rimmed baking sheet. Cook 3 to 5 minutes longer for medium rare to medium doneness. Proceed as directed.
- Cook in 350°F oven 19 to 23 minutes for medium rare; 24 to 28 minutes for medium doneness.
- Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Combine noodles, peas, bell pepper, basil, mint, green onion and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds in large bowl. Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, oil, lime juice and remaining 1 teaspoon ginger in small bowl until blended. Pour over noodle mixture; toss to combine. Season with additional soy sauce to taste, if desired. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
- Remove Filets from oven when internal temperature reaches 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium. Transfer Filets to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)
