    How to Make Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

    While I’m a fan of wrapping just about anything in bacon (a shoe wrapped in bacon would probably taste great), bacon wrapped filet mignon is a particularly good match. Filet is cut from the beef tenderloin, which is a very tender cut of meat, but also very lean. In fact, it’s only slightly fattier than chicken.

    How to Cook a Whole Chicken

    Everyone should know how to cook a whole chicken, for two reasons. First, and quite simply, it’s a great meal. You get the benefits of both light and dark meat. Done right, the chicken is more moist and tender than cooking pieces separately. And it’s super impressive to your guests, so you look like an all-star.

    The Fastest Way to Roast a Whole Chicken

    Perhaps my all time favorite way to cook chicken is simply whole roasted. The different cuts provide different flavors and textures, from the salty, fatty skin, to the tender juicy white meat of the breast, to the “tear flesh off the bone” wings and legs…there is something for everyone.  And roasting a whole chicken is actually pretty easy (at least with the right techniques and practice).

    How to Cook Beef Tenderloin

    To cook the perfect beef tenderloin, it helps to know a bit about the cut of meat itself. The tenderloin is a long, cylinder shaped muscle that runs along the spine (one on each side) of the cow. It’s the muscle that Filet Mignon are cut from. Because of its location (far from the legs), is does relatively little work, which is one of the main reasons it’s such a tender cut of meat.

    How Long do you Cook Filet Mignon

    Perhaps the most common steak question I get is “How long should I cook Filet Mignon?”

    How to Cook Filet Mignon in the Oven

    Filet mignon, or “dainty fillet” is among the most coveted cuts from the cow due its lovely, tender texture and subtle flavor. Despite the title of our dish, filet mignon should not be fully cooked in the oven. I first sear the steak on the stove top, then transfer to the oven to finish. This method is my favorite, due to the crispy outside crust and perfectly cooked center, beautifully rare.

    How to Cook Chicken Thighs

    Sometimes, in my more reflective moments, I feel a bit bad for the humble chicken thigh.  The thigh is one of the most flavorful, tender, and juicy parts of the chicken, but damn if those breasts don’t get all the love.  Now, I’ll say up front, I’ve got nothing against the breast.
