Mother's Day with The Meat House

By THE MEAT HOUSE

May 10, 2013 at 12:06 PM

Mother’s Day will be here soon and that means it’s time to pamper the Mom in your life! What better way to make her feel special, than with a gourmet meal fit for a Queen from The Meat House in Summit! The filet mignon is popular among women because it’s tender, lean and rather cute…just like mom!

Although small, the filet mignon packs a flavorful punch (hey Mom does too!) when cooked correctly. Because the filet mignon is lean, it can dry out quickly, so sometimes it needs a little help. Nothing wrong with that! A great way to bring out its natural juiciness is with a robust marinade and some savory steak sauce. The marinating process will help break down the tissue allowing moisture to be absorbed and the steak sauce will add moisture while it’s cooking.

Zesty Marinated Filet Mignon

Ingredients

1 (8 oz) bottle zesty Italian salad dressing

4 filet mignon, 1 ½ inches thick

4 tablespoons steak sauce

4 teaspoons water

Directions

Pour the salad dressing into a shallow pan, place the steaks in the pan and let them marinate for 3 to 4 hours. Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or pre-heat grill to medium. Grill the steaks for about 8 minutes per side (5 minutes per side for rare). Baste with a mixture of steak sauce and water. For perfect steaks, turn them only once.

Serve with light sides like a garden salad, our marinated asparagus or burgundy wine mushrooms for a Mom-friendly (and delicious) Mother’s Day meal. Don’t forget to pick up some creamy and delicious cheese, savory crackers, fresh baked goodies and some Lickt gelato to round out the meal.  You can find all of your Mother’s Day essentials at The Meat House!

And remember, even renowned cuts like the filet mignon need a little help sometimes. So give Mom a hand with the dishes and you’ll probably make her day.
