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.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fish Burger

I’ve never been to Tampa, and so I didn’t know much about the regional specialties.  Knowing the city is on the Gulf Coast, I figured seafood was a winner, and with just a bit of research I found the Grouper Sandwich - which is my inspiration for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Burger.  Yes, not a traditional burger, but come on and cut me some slack, I gotta come up with 32 of these!  Like me y

Miami Dolphins Cuban Burger

As I’m not going to actually cook a dolphin, the Cuban sandwich seemed like a great idea for my Miami inspired NFL burger. The Cuban is a beautiful art-like sandwich, made with tender, favorful cuts of pork....so, instead of a beef patty, I decided to grill off a ground pork burger, seasoned with some BBQ rub.

Buffalo Bills Chicken Wing Burger

For the Buffalo Bills the choice was pretty obvious, yes, you guessed it…a Buffalo Chicken Wing-style burger.  In keeping with that flavor profile, I use ground chicken (turkey would work well too) instead of beef.  I sear the burger with simple seasoning, and then drench it in wing sauce (see recipe).

Minnesota Vikings Juicy Lucy Burger

I gotta say an idea for a Minnesota Vikings burger didn’t jump out at me immediately, and so I ended up doing a bit of research.  It didn’t take long to find the Juicy Lucy – apparently a Minnesota tradition that’s morphed into dozens (perhaps hundreds) of variations.  But the original was a stuffed burger with American Cheese as the stuffing.  So let’s go original.

Philadelphia Eagles Cheesesteak Burger

It was pretty easy to invent an Eagles inspired burger – Philly is all about the cheese steak!  I make mine with a thin beef patty, quickly seared on the stove top.  Then, to fully capture that cheese steak vibe, I top it with sautéed onions and peppers, smother it in Cheese Whiz (Gotta use the real stuff!), and serve it up on a hoagie roll.

Arizona Cardinals Guacamole Burger

My burger for the Arizona Cardinals was another pretty easy choice.  I love the flavors of the Southwest, and I bring them to bear in this burger.

Cincinnati Bengals Chili Burger

There were quite a few viable options for my Cincinnati-style burger, but most of my research kept coming back to Cincinnati chili.  So, let's go with it!  For the Bengal’s burger I’m using a beef patty, which I grill to capture that smoky charred flavor.

NY Jets Reuben Burger

Great Deli goes hand and hand with New York City, and for the Jets, I decided to reflect that with my Reuben Burger. I use a beef patty (make sure to shape it like the rye bread) which I make pretty thin and sear off in a pan. To reuben-ize it, I serve the burger on some toasted rye bread, and top it with pastrami, melted Swiss, and sour kraut.

San Diego Chargers California Burger

Given there are 3 California NFL teams, I knew I’d end up making a “California Burger” at some point. The San Diego Chargers get the honor of the state’s namesake burger, if for no other reason, than it’s probably the healthiest burger on the menu, and given San Diego has beach weather 12 months a year, they stay pretty damn fit!
