Often deemed the “King of Steaks” the filet mignon is cut from the small end of the tenderloin (also known as the short loin) which is found on the back rib cage of the animal. This area of the cow does not bear weight like other parts of the cow, which means the connective tissue does not toughen from movement, resulting in an extremely tender, juicy, and delicious steak. Dutch Meadows’ 8 oz. filets are great for quick cooking and little waste. They are well suited for grilling, skillet cooking, broiling, and cutting into pieces for shish kabobs or strips for a stir-fry. This cut is also sometimes called the Tenderloin Steak. If you're a fan of filet mignon from the grocery store or your average steak chain restaurant, then you don't know what you're missing. Biting into a 100% grass fed filet mignon is an experience that every meat lover must enjoy at least once in their lives. Although we have a feeling you'll be coming back for more after that bite.
