Indoor Beef Tenderloin pieces--too expensive to screw up, help!

Hiya Eaters,

We splurged on two gorgeous pieces of beef tenderloin for our anniversary/husband-elect's birthday and I would love your methods/recipes for cooking indoors. It's pretty cold outside, so grilling is not really an option. We have na electric stove/oven and non-stick, regular, and cast iron cookware.

We both love our beef rare rare rare. I know a quick sear on the cast iron is the likely best choice, but what suggestions do you have? Any favorite recipes/techniques?
