Popular Types of Filet Mignon
Mild and flavorful, the filet mignon is one of the most famous cuts of steak. It is known for being a smaller cut that offers leaner meat that is easy to grill without overcooking. Popular types of this cut are those that come from the mid-west, due to their ideal marbling and filets that are aged for a distinct flavor profile.
Filet Mignon Ingredients and Sourcing Info
A good filet mignon starts with high-end beef. We source ours from the mid-west, where the mixed seasons provide better marbling. Our beef is only corn-fed, too. These exacting standards help deliver an exceptional piece of beef that gets hand-cut daily by our trained chefs. We also age our beef for a minimum of 21 days. This process helps elevate both flavors and tenderness.
Filet Mignon Health Benefits
A lean cut of American beef, like the Filet Mignon served at J. Alexander’s, is an excellent source of protein. Steak is also known to provide health-promoting nutrients like iron, vitamin B, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.
Filet Mignon Customer Review
Cooked rare, just like I asked. My filet mignon was tender and juicy. You can’t find flavors like this at any steakhouse, and that sauce they put on it is something else. I am coming back soon for round 2!
