Today is National Filet Mignon Day. When I was younger I disdained this cut of meat as devoid of taste and delicious fat. I was known to polish off an entire porterhouse steak all by my lonesome. I have come to appreciate this beef cut and learned to understand quality over quantity. If you are in New York and a carnivore visit Gallaghers Steak House on 52nd Street in Manhattan. Try their Filet Mignon with Bone Marrow Crust. The you will understand.
