A seared filet mignon is, without a doubt the most tender of the steaks. It’s cut from the beef tenderloin. A muscle that runs along the back of the cow, which does very little work (relative to the rest of the cow), and that is what makes it so tender.

While I’ll use asparagus as my vegetable for many a dinner, the soup itself is a perfect light dinner, maybe with a simple salad or crusty bread.
