The Filet Mignon
AKA The Tenderloin



What is a Filet Mignon Steak?

Filet mignon is a lean, tender cut of beef from the small end of the tenderloin, which is located near the spine of the cow. The tenderloin is the most well-known muscle on a cow, and is also the most tender. It's often considered the best-tasting part of a cow. A 4-ounce serving of filet mignon has about 255 calories, 29 grams of protein, and only 5 grams of fat. It’s also a good source of iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins. The filet mignon is best cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. Some top recipe ideas for this cut are filet mignon with roasted garlic butter, filet mignon with red wine sauce and filet mignon with mushroom sauce.
