The most desired cut of meat, the Filet Mignon is tender and succulent. Which is why the French named it “tender filet” (filet mignon in French). From the tenderloin, this steak contains very little connective tissue, which means this cut is the most tender cut of meat from the entire animal. A true Filet Mignon comes from the smaller end of the tenderloin, where only about 1 pound of meat from each animal exists. Wrap it with a strip of bacon, and you have a great celebratory dinner. Approximately 8 oz each, 2 per pkg.
