So I love filet mignon and it is about the only steak my honey will eat. I like to buy the whole tenderloin and trim it up myself. Next time I make a whole loin, I will demonstrate how to clean the loin. Today however, I used a portion of the trimmings and ground them into excellent, juicy and tender filet mignon burgers. I used a local Handcrafted Artisan Bread from Carter’s. The Parmesan loaf is my favorite for this dish. Hope you get the chance to enjoy these delicious burgers. I paired this burger with a Cabernet Sauvignon from J.R. Dill Winery on the south/east side of Seneca Lake…
Fresh Ground Filet Mignon Burgers
1 lb fresh trimmings from the filet loin (connective tissue removed but retain some fat)
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
Season the beef with garlic salt, onion powder and pepper. Using a Kitchen Aid with a meat grinder attachment, grind the meat and some of the fat into a large bowl. Form meat into patties. Cook burgers to desired liking. Add cheese, use desired condiments, pour a glass of wine and eat!
