We all know how special an indulgence a steak meal can be. Specifically, the tender filet mignon, a cut of beef that melts in your mouth. The filet gets an assist from a rich, buttery demi-glace sauce that'll have you licking your plate clean. Rounding out this meal is a delectable Gouda gratin and hearty green beans. Indulge away, as if every day was a special day. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.
