Description

Great things sometimes come in small packages. This is most certainly the case when describing Double R Ranch USDA Prime Petite Filet Mignon. Each filet mignon is just 4 ounces in size, but packs the same delicious mild beef flavor and amazing buttery texture as their larger sized counterparts. The small size is ideal for lighter meals or when you want to create a special meal with another center-of-the-plate hero. Like all our steaks, these are perfectly aged and hand-cut to ensure a memorable dining experience. Each package contains 2, 4 oz. petite filets.

 

Beef Grading 101

This steak is USDA Prime, the highest level of marbling recognized by the USDA.

Beef sold in the U.S. is graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are eight total grades and the top grade is USDA Prime.

Only about 4 to 5% of all beef graded in the U.S. has marbling to grade at this level. You can sometimes find USDA Prime at local butchers and higher-end grocery stores, but most of it goes to high end steakhouses and restaurants. Prime beef has excellent flavor and tenderness.

Marbling, or intramuscular fat, is the most important factor used to grade beef in the U.S. and around the world. This is determined by a visual inspection of the amount and distribution of intramuscular fat between the 12th and 13th rib. Historically, this single inspection provides a correct indicator of the entire carcass.

Loin_Primal

Filet mignon, or tenderloin steak, is obtained from the loin primal located under the ribs and next to the spine. Filets mignons are sourced from the psoas major, a muscle that receives minimal use. Exercise makes a muscle tough, so the lack of physical activity makes the filet mignon a very tender steak. This muscle has minimal marbling so it does not have the flavorful fat found in ribeyes or New York strips. 

Fast fact: The correct spelling for multiple steaks is filets mignons.
