08 Sep Filet Mignon: King of the Steaks
Many of the world’s top chefs refer to the filet mignon as the “King of Steaks.” The cut doesn’t get its name because it’s the biggest steak cut (quite the opposite actually) but rather because it is the most tender steak you’ll ever have the pleasure of biting into. From the first bite to last, this is a steak that brims with flavor and practically melts in your mouth.
When Meat the Butcher subscribers ask us for suggestions and advice about what type of meat they should include in their online steak order, we also advice adding one or two filets to the box. It’s our experience that these premier steaks make any meal even more memorable. You really can’t go wrong when you serve a filet mignon prime steak.
Understanding the Filet Mignon Prime Steak
The reason that the filet sounds so fancy is because French chefs named it. The name translates to boneless dainty steak. While accurate, it’s not a great name, which is why American butcher shops and meat sellers continue to use the French version.
The filet mignon prime steak is cut directly from the steer’s tenderloin region, where the most valuable cuts are located. When you’re looking at a steer, the tenderloin starts just behind their last rib and ends with the sirloin. Before one of the Premiere Meat Company’s artesian butchers separates the filets from the other cuts, the tenderloin looks like a cone and includes several vertebrae. The filets are removed from the narrowest part of the tenderloin.
The reason filet mignon prime steaks are so very tender is because the tenderloin is one of the few areas of the steer’s body that bears almost no weight and that has very little connective tissue.
Enjoy the Best Filet Mignon Prime Steak
Since Meat the Butchers first started selling meat, they’ve been the preferred supplier for many of the top restaurants in Southern California. Many local chefs refuse to have anything to do with filet steaks that weren’t processed by us.
It’s easy to understand why chef’s place a premium on the filet prime steaks we sell. Ours are the best.
One of the biggest differences between our filet mignon prime steaks and everyone else’s is that we know the key to a great filet steak is how well the steer that provided the steak was treated. The livestock producers raise some of the best Black Angus cattle in the country. Each of the animals is fed a corn and hay diet and raised in a stress-free environment before they’re butchered. Once the beef has been cut, we allow the filets to age for a full 21 days, which improves both the flavor and tenderness of the meat.
