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, four ways to cook the cutest cut around.

1. Steak Diane

Diane-style means sautéing thinly sliced, pounded filet mignon in butter, then flambéing and basting it in a rich Cognac sauce.

2. Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches with Norton-Shiitake Sauce

Grilled strips of filet mignon are delicious on these garlicky sandwiches.

3. Shaking Beef

This sweet and vinegary Vietnamese dish is simply served with an easy soy-based sauce and lime wedges.

4. Sparks's Sautéed Filet Mignon with Yellow Tomato Vinaigrette

This is a great summer steak recipe because it calls for two summer staples: tomatoes and basil.
