The filet mignon is cut from the center portion of the tenderloin, and is the most tender steak you can buy. We've wet aged this USDA Choice+ filet for 20 days and trimmed the exterior fat, but the ample marbling ensures a juicy, full flavor profile. You really don't even need a knife! This is the only Choice product we carry, as we believe this is the one steak where you actually get more bang for your buck by purchasing Choice. There is no difference in tenderness from Choice to Prime, and the difference in flavor is minimal. As with the Prime, we ensure a consistent cut for each and every filet we sell, so that they all get the same exact preparation and cooking times.
