Like all meat, filet mignon is high in protein. You don't have to get your protein from meat, but without enough protein, your body begins to break down the tissues. I don't eat much beef, just because I don't like the texture of it, unless it's filet mignon. I find that it is very tender, juicy, and cooks faster than most other beef options. This beef and vegetable soup is a great option for a dinner especially when you have things to do around the house. It doesn't take much time to add all the ingredients into the pot.
