quick filet mignon recipe ideas based on what I have available to me? (not much)

I just finished defrosting in microwave(sacrilege, I know. But I'm hungry).

I have:

salt/pepper
every oil imaginable
Worcester sauce
cumin
red pepper
cilantro
onions
peppers(red, green, yellow)
Habanero pepper
onion powder

I'm trying to make some sort of flavor enhancer besides just pepper and salt and I'm coming up empty. Ideas? Thanks so much!

    Do you have onions and sour cream? Lightly salt and pepper then a pinch of sugar... broil the filets to the doneness you want. carmalize the onions, then swirl in a spoonful of sourcream to make a sauce....

        Anytime....I usually serve it with mashed potatoes and a green veggie,...maybe a salad
