Filet Mignon Feast for Father’s Day
Father’s Day without steak would be like a birthday without cake. Unthinkable. And no steak does the trick like filet mignon—the king of cuts for the man of the castle. Of course, everybody loves this boneless, juicy steak, so making wonderful filet recipes is just an excuse for the whole family to eat what they really want. But give dad his due for making it happen, at least once every year.
We’ve got some great steak recipes that can be made all kinds of different ways. But our favorites are the eight here, which you can toss on the grill, of course, or just pop into a skillet. The range of accompaniments is truly astonishing. How about filet mignon with blueberry bourbon barbecue sauce or a great streak with Southern-style burgundy mushroom sauce. One of the recipes keeps the steak simple but also adds skewered vegetables as part of the package. Another goes for the big bold taste of gorgonzola and caramelized onions. One of the best filet recipes bounds off the grill onto Texas grilled toasts.
