Today we celebrate the tenderest of meats. It’s National Filet Mignon Day! While it might not be in vogue to order filet at a steakhouse anymore thanks to coveted aged rib eyes and tomahawks, the ultra-tender, lean cut definitely has its place and is worth getting to know at home. Here, eight ways to cook the cutest cut around.
1. Poached Beef Fillet with Fines Herbes Dressing
Poaching slices of filet mignon in a vegetable-enhanced broth just until rosy seals in the delectable flavor.
2. Steak Diane
Diane-style means sautéing thinly sliced, pounded filet mignon in butter, then flambéing and basting it in a rich Cognac sauce.
