Beef Tenderloin Recipes
Beef tenderloin is the king of all beef. It is exceptionally tender and perfect for all your special occasions. Learn to prepare a great meal with easy to follow step by step instructions.
For those not in the know, a filet mignon is cut from whole beef tenderloin AKA a pismos. You can buy pre-cut, and it will be a bit more expensive, but I usually buy the whole tenderloin and cut my own.
QUALITY DOES MATTER. It is all about quality here. Prime is the top 2%; you can’t find it (it goes to the absolute best restaurants), and you don’t want to pay the price.
Next is Choice. About half the beef sold in the USA is choice, and this is what you should buy. It will be about $10-15 per pound for the whole tenderloin. Select is next but just say no.
