The filet is cut from the smallest end of the tenderloin and has a great balance of texture and buttery flavor. It is a rarely-used muscle, which means it never gets a workout, and doesn’t stress the muscle moving back and forth all day. This creates a very tender muscle that is extremely soft and juicy when cooked.
There are 3 parts to the tenderloin muscle: there is the head (which connects to the sirloin muscle), then there is the center of the tenderloin called the body which is also referred to as the “barrel,” and then you have the end which is called the tail, and it has a triangular shape.
You can view each part of the muscle in our video below, where Julie, our quality manager, talks in detail about the filet tenderloin and how we trim it.
Filet Tenderloin is a perfect masterpiece seared and plated all on its own, but you can also cut in against the grain in thin slices to put in a salad, soup, or other appetizers.
Keep an eye out in grocery stores for our very special limited edition Center Cut Beef Tenderloin that will be the perfect addition to your holiday feast! This is an entire roast for you to marinate using a classic pan sauce, a French onion pan sauce or one of your family recipes. We also tried a maple crusted tenderloin recipe and a horseradish and garlic crusted recipe, and they seriously delivered on taste. Get all of our holiday recipes here.

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
"My husband and I loved having these filets once a week. I sear both sides and "in-between" in a very hot small Lodge cast iron skillet. I use a spatter guard. Then I place the skillet in a 400 degree oven for between 2min. 10-20 seconds. Perfect medium minus filets. My mouth is watering as I write this!!"Mary M.
"These steaks and other Pre products have been a staple in our home for over a year now and we continue to be fully satisfied with their consistently good quality and flavor.

"Best steak I've had in a long time. I love being able to order grass fed beef that is way better than I can find in grocery stores. Really tastes great on the grill . I'm addicted to it now."Jeff S.
"First time trying the 10 Pack New York Strips. Oh My! had an unexpectedly warm day and whipped out the grill. Enough said. Delish !!!! Steaks are equally cut making cooking much easier for the desired temp."Lu H.
