Filet/Prime Rib (Mom)

This is how my mother cooks filet and prime rib. A butcher in MD provided this method 25 years ago and she has religiously used it since.
Here is her description of how to make filet:
I basically use this method for cooking.

I marinate half a filet in one bottle of cardini's italian or a whole filet in 2 bottles. It can marinate for as little as an hour or as long as you have but doesn't have to be overnight or anything. I broil for 10 minutes then cook as directed.

The key is to take it out and cover it with tin foil and let it rest. You can cook it ahead and serve it room temperature or serve it hot after resting.
(I actually enjoy it more at room temperature)
