NATIONAL FILET MIGNON DAY

National Filet Mignon Day

National Filet Mignon Day on August 13 celebrates a specialty cut of beef.  Usually, from a steer or heifer, a filet mignon is a steak taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass.

  • Filet mignon is French for “cute fillet” or “dainty fillet.”
  • In French, filet mignon may be called filet de boeuf, which translates to beef fillet in English.
