Our Best Ideas for Filet Mignon

Filet mignon is a highly sought-after cut of beef that’s known for tenderness and flavor. It comes from the smaller end of the tenderloin and is juicy without being overly fatty. This cut can be incorporated into all kinds of meals, from savory breakfast dishes, like steak and eggs, to a decadent filet mignon beef Wellington. Be it grilled, pan-seared or broiled, there’s a way to cook filet mignon that’s right for any occasion.

A rich Roquefort-chive sauce elevates a simple seared filet to steakhouse-level without much extra effort. Simply simmer cream to thicken it before folding in the cheese, chives and season to taste. Serve it with a simple green salad.

The Ultimate Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is well worth the steps it takes to prepare once you taste it thanks to a garlicky mushroom duxelles mixture and a mustardy green peppercorn sauce. The recipe calls for a center cut beef tenderloin, which is also known as filet mignon. Speak to your local butcher for help sourcing the perfect piece of beef.
