Fillet Mignon  (Getting my Money’s Worth)


I haven’t had Fillet Mignon in years, because it always so Expensive (usually $17.99 around here).
However they finally had a sale price of $10.99, so I got a Beef Tenderloin weighing 6 pounds, 3 ounces.

So to get my money’s worth I cut it in half & I smoked the Thicker half (3 lb, 2 oz) for our 48th Wedding Anniversary.


Link to Wedding Anniversary Dinner Smoke:

Smoked Beef Tenderloin (AKA Fillet Mignon)   

Then I cut this Thinner half (3 lb, 1 oz) into 9 small Fillet Mignon Steaks, and some trimmings for Sammies for the near future.

After Marinating the Steaks in Teriyaki Marinade, I did the following for our Supper, and Vacuum packed the leftover Steaks to be warmed up at a later time.

The Sammies will be in another post in the near future.


Thanks for stopping by,
Bear




After Smoking the larger half back in December, I decided to slice this smaller half into Steaks:

Here’s a Better look at the Smaller half (3LB, 1oz) of the Beef Tenderloin that was on sale:

So I got 9 Fillet Mignon Steaks, 
and on the upper end of the plate is all small trimmings for a couple of Sammies in the near future:

Yummy for sure Bear. Looks great.

I get Filet steaks with my beef . They are super good. Just has some Monday
 
Looks go but 6 big esters here makes Filet pretty costly...JJ
 
Nice job on the fillets Bear!

They looks perfectly done to me!

There costly here too, but if you buy the whole fillet at Sam's it's not too bad.

Point!
