CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Sunday, August 13 is National Filet Mignon Day!

 According to the National Day Calander, a filet mignon is a steak that is taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass. Filet mignon is French for “cute fillet” or “dainty fillet” and might be called filet de boeuf, which means beef fillet in English.

Since the filet mignon is from the most tender portion of the tenderloin, it is one of the most prized cuts of beef. It is commonly cut into 1-inch to 2-inch thick portions, grilled, and then served as is, so where can you get the best one?
