Filets weigh approximately 6 oz and serve 1 person.
Your favorite online butcher presents the filet mignon, steak cut from the most tender muscle on the steer. Because the psoas major muscle (tenderloin) does almost no work during the life of the animal, the resulting meat contains the least connective tissue of all cuts of beef, resulting in a smooth-as-butter, melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. Filet mignon recipes usually include a sauce or flavored butter (read our Valentine‚Äôs Day special recipe here). For the most impressive steak available, the filet mignon is always the answer.
