National Filet Mignon Day: Celebrating the Prime Piece of Beef Americans Love to Eat
If you're in the "moood" for a juicy steak, go grab your fork! Aug. 13 is National Filet Mignon Day, an annual food holiday that celebrates that prime piece of beef Americans love to eat!
Americans have been devouring the melt-in-your mouth “dainty fillets” since the late 1800s. Due to the low levels of marbling and fat, this tender and lean cut of meat comes from the tenderloin and is often prepared with a slice of bacon to add flavor and keep it from drying out. Whether you prefer yours smokin' on the grill, roasted, broiled or pan-fried, today is the perfect day to enjoy a juicy filet mignon!
Bon appetit! Today is also International Left-Hander's Day.
