Buttery-tender-melt in your mouth, those are the words that come to mind when I talk about this cut. It’s the leanest and most delicate cut off the steer and the most sought after. If your looking for a leaner cut that will blow your mind, this is it.
A Mino Prime 8-9 oz. Filet is versatile and can be cooked a variety of ways, I prefer to grill on high heat for 2 minutes each side. A Filet is lean so the excess fat that causes a nice flare up on the grill to create a charred crust is harder to achieve, using a binder like olive oil and season with salt will help. Or throw it on the coals directly if you can, the char and flavor is outstanding.
