Also known as filet mignon, this is the most tender cut of beef. It's lean, yet succulent and elegant. This steak has a melt-in-your-mouth texture, light flavor, and compact shape great for one person.
Just liberally season it with salt and pepper, sear in a skillet on both sides, and finish in the oven basted with butter for a perfectly crusted main dish.
Or, as an alternative, fire up your charcoal or gas grill and get to cooking outside for that traditional grill flavor.
