The old expression "we're eatin' high on the hog" meant the tender cuts, not the flavorful (and harder to cook) cuts closer to the ground..., same with a steer.
Whoever popularized wrapping bacon around a fillet mignon and serving it with deglazed pan sauce was a genius. I love fillets, but I inject them, or marinate in an a beefy concoction.
"Chewing the fat"? "Upper crust"? Lot's of expressions go back to ole England.
The only way I will buy tenderloin is prime. Marbling adds flavor in the meat.
Barding is an old method to add flavor or fat to a cut of meat. I use it to add fat into a leaner cut of meat.

Larding? I have an old larding needle with the slider, but it works with garlic butter and most likely a lot of other things.

Dude... I'm constantly in enthralled with your cooks.
This is a delicious looking twist on the Wellington and it looks simply scrumptious.
And you sir, do it justice with the plating and pics.
Bravo sir, bravo!
You should check out the stuff that he builds, the man has mad skillz.
I'm on his knife list and can't wait to see what he comes up with for me once he gets settled into his new shop.

civilsmoker civilsmoker Where did you find the puff pastry? Or are you making that as well?
I have an idea that I've been rolling around in my head for a poor man's Wellington.:emoji_thumbsup:

You got me on a Malaprop.
Barding is making a fattie by wrapping the meat with fat and flavor.

Larding is pulling fat and flavor through the interior of lean meat to build a marbling for a juicy cook.
I do use use larding now and then.

Check the freezer section of your local grocer. Puff Pastry and Filo dough is often on the shelf.
