Tenderloin filet, otherwise known as filet mignon, is the most tender cut of beef available. Lean while still succulent, this cut has a fine, buttery texture that cooks well with any method.
Tenderloin filet comes from the area below the backbone known as the Loin Primal. The Loin Primal is home to several other popular cuts of beef including Strip Steak, T-Bone, and Porterhouse Steaks. While Tenderloin Filet is a versatile cut, they are best prepared on the grill or under a broiler.
Chef Eric Leskovar has some great tips for cooking tenderloin filet:
Organic Grass Fed & Finished Beef
Certified USDA Organic cattle are raised on 100% Organic Grass from ween while grazing in open pastures, never in a feed lot. Very lean beef with little to no fat content. Always Antibiotic and Hormone free.
