The term “filet mignon” is a French term meaning small fillet and originally referred to the beginning portion of the tenderloin that is smaller in size than the center section.  In most butcher shops, the term is now used to refer to any steak that is cut from the tenderloin – sometimes even needing string to hold it together.  At Porter & York, our filet mignon is completely trimmed and taken only from the center of the loin producing a true tenderloin steak.

The tenderloin is a muscle in the loin and is in two different sub-primals – the short loin and sirloin – creating its unique oblong shape.  Flavor in beef is derived from how much a muscle is used and, because of the lack of use, the tenderloin has a very subtle beef flavor and is extremely tender.  Being a very lean steak, the filet is best cooked to no more than medium-rare.

The Perfect Filet Mignon

Natural Angus Beef

The Top 8%

Our cuts are made from only the top 8% of USDA Beef. Consisting of Prime and the very best Choice beef.

  • Only the top 8% of USDA beef
  • Prime and high-Choice grades
  • Pasture raised in the Midwest
  • Grass-fed and grain finished
  • Aged 28 days & cut-to-order

Marbling and Tenderness

The amount of fat in meat is known as marbling. Prime beef and the best cuts of Choice beef have the most marbling. Our butchers intentionally select these cuts because we feel they have the ideal amount of marbling, giving them a perfect balance of flavor and tenderness.

Natural Angus Beef from Family Farms

Quite simply: We buy the best product from the best cattle raising region in the United States.

Quality cattle are essential for an outstanding finished product. That's why only the finest grain fed, natural Angus cattle from Midwest American family farms supply the Porter & York beef. Our meat comes from pasture-raised cattle that are fed a 100% vegetarian diet of grass, corn, and whole grains.

Our cattle are humanely processed in state of the art facilities. We emphasize sustainability and ecologically friendly processes. We do not add ingredients, colors, or chemicals.
