National Filet Mignon Day - August 13th

Now here's a national day that I can get behind. It's National Filet Mignon Day!
Normally I'd have the kids pose with the food, but nope, this one is mine.
We've been fortunate that our nearby Costco and Sams have started carrying Prime beef. Season them with Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper and you're all set.

If only I had a charcoal grill these would be perfect. I make due with a wood chip smoker box to give it a nice wood flavor.

Dinner time! Everybody tuck in, belly up, chow down, or whatever expression you want to use to start eating.

A perfectly cooked rare steak. Yum.

What National Day will we celebrate next?


  1. I'm getting closer, but I'm still a med-rare guy.
    I think next will be national Creamsicle, Lemon Meringue Pie, or Rollercoaster Day

  2. That's some National Day, Filet Mignon...such a fancy one to anticipate...perfect dinner choice, Joe! Glad you were all able to enjoy a perfectly-grilled Filet Mignon...where the only needed seasoning is fresh, cracked black pepper and kosher salt...simplicity at its best. Let's National Day about a creamsicle or lemon meringue pie?...they both sound like yummy dessert ideas :-) EOM
