About this cut
For a very special occasion, this is the most sought-after steak we offer: thick, tender, flavorful, perfectly-trimmed. These 2" thick medallions are hand selected and cut from the eye of the rib, the most tender kosher cut on the steer. Petite and elegant, and meant to be served one per guest, these filets easily steal the show at a multi-course dinner. These are in extremely short supply- great alternatives include: hanger steak (demi), oyster steak, flatiron steak, and dry-aged rib-eye steak. We highly encourage you to try one of these alternative, rather than waiting for a restock!
Other names for this cut: Tenderloin
Basic Cooking Technique:
Sear over high heat on a grill, then cook to rare or medium rare over indirect heat. Tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

Every cow is different but I hope that the other Filet's I purchased are better than the two I just prepared which were just average, not STELLAR like the prior order.
As good as eating at a 5 star steak house
These are melt in your mouth delicious - no fat, very tender. Excellent quality
TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY. IT JUST MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH
Every Grow & Behold steak is the best steak I’ve ever had. These filet mignons were the best G&B steaks I’ve ever had. Coat them in coarse ground pepper, sear both sides in a pan and EVOO then finished in the oven to perfection. Unbelievable!
Tender and delicious
It was really good, flavorful. I’ll definitely buy again
Good but not great. Bit overpriced
This steak is truly perfect! We cook them on the bbq and it comes out perfect every time. It is incredibly flavorful and delicious. It is our favorite steak! Its a must try - don't think about the price just buy it and open a nice bottle of red wine and enjoy the night.
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
