However, Edmund spurned the three break points and lost five games in a row, despite earning another break point in the fifth game, to fall 5-1 behind before Monteiro sealed the first set 6-2.
Edmund hit back, though, with a break to go 5-2 up in the second set and, although he lost the next two games, the 22-year-old broke once more to level the match.
That proved crucial as Edmund powered to victory by taking six of the next seven games to set up a clash with home favourite Gilles Simon.
