Filet Mignon Series- Post #1: Is It Best to Purchase the Whole Cut (as you see in the photo below), or a Small Pack, usually containing 2 to 4 steaks?
The answer is both. It all depends on how many times a week/month do you make a filet meal as well as the size of your family. If you have a household of two, you can still purchase the whole cut, divide it in the number of meals that you plan to make, seal them in packs of 2/ filet per meal and freeze them. I got a total of 6 meals for 2 people out out of this filet , I then sealed and dated the packs to freeze them.
Either way it is a win-win situation; you are saving a ton of money by purchasing a whole filet cut. A filet mignon meal at a restaurant for 2 people runs between $60 to $80 dollars. Furthermore, you are preparing fancy dandy meals for your loved ones, smile.
During this Filet Series Week, I will be posting some of my filet recipes and I hope that you make them at home and enjoy them.
