A truly high-end cut of beef.  Filet Mignon is part of a beef tenderloin, which surrounds the filet mignon. The Filet Mignon comes from the end portion of the tenderloin, and due to the small amount of filet mignon able to be butchered from each animal it is widely considered a top tier of high-end steaks with marbling and tender characteristics. Our meat is dry aged for 21 days, the beef’s flavor and tenderness intensifies as it takes on more of the dry-aged qualities.

Filet mignon is a small cut—hence its name: “mignon” means “small” in French—often just one and a half to two and a half inches in diameter.


Grade: Prime

Our steaks are graded “Prime”. Prime is the highest grade of beef available for purchase. Rich and tender, with juicy and beefy flavor. Prime-grade steak is mainly available at higher-end restaurants or reputable steakhouses rather than in stores and supermarkets. All our cuts are restaurant grade cuts.

Pan Sear, Grill, Sous Vide


2 Ways to Cook Filet Mignon

Since filet mignon has neither fat nor bones, it cooks especially fast. However you cook your filet mignon, make sure to keep a close eye on it.

  • 1. Skillet-to-oven: Briefly sear filet mignon in a hot oven-safe skillet (cast-iron pan) until a brown crust forms, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to the oven for a few minutes to finish cooking.
  • 2. Pay-frying: Skip the oven and simply pan-fry the filet mignon in a skillet on the stovetop, about 3 to 8 minutes per side.

Filet Mignon Temperature Guide

Since filet mignon doesn’t have any fat or connective tissue that needs to melt down, there’s no reason to cook it beyond medium-rare.

  • 1. For rare filet mignon, aim for an internal temperature of 120–130°F, the juiciest stage of cooking.
  • 2. A medium-rare filet mignon will have an internal temperature of 130–135°F and offer a little more resistance when poked.

Keep in mind that carryover cooking from resting the meat can increase internal temperature by 5°F.
