Fresh Ground Filet Mignon Burgers

Fresh Ground Filet Mignon Burgers 6

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…

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.

    1. I really hate to waste anything. When I trim a tenderloin, there is a lot of usable meat left over. I make tips that I will blog in the near future, and I make my own ground meat. The tenderloin costs up front it seems, but in the long run it is very economical for such a great cut.

    1. Tony, your funny. That’s why I learned to cut my own tenderloin. Turns out at the end of the effort, I spend less than I would on a sirloin steak. It’s so worth it.
