Filets Mignon are cut from the tenderloins, which are located on either side of the vertebrae and are long, thin muscles that are the most tender on the entire animal. The meat is very lean and the flavor milder than other premium cuts. Often served with sauces that complement the flavor of the meat.
Wagyu beef (also known as Kobe beef) comes from a breed of cattle descended from Japanese herds specifically raised to raise the percentage of fat marbling to consistently high levels. The intense marbling delivers incredible flavor, buttery tenderness and juiciness as the fat melts during the cooking process. 100% Wagyu genetics. No antibiotics or added hormones.
