Default Do you like filet mignon?

But hate to pay $19.99/lb for it, or $35 at a steakhouse? Buy yourself a whole tenderloin (PSMO - Peeled with Side Meat/Muscle On) and learn how to butcher it.

This glorious bounty cost me $25 at $4.99/lb. Took me about 15 - 20 minutes to butcher. I used the chain (the long strip along the bottom) in a beer-based recipe that I'll be sharing in a different thread.



I'm sure a lot of homebrewers already know this, but I thought I'd share in case you don't

Looks great. I saw Alton Brown do it on Good Eats and plan on eventually giving it a try one of these days

I've done that in the past. It really only takes a few minutes and it's so worth it. I always eye the meat at Costco; their prices are usually pretty good. Hmmm... I need to stop there this weekend...

So what's this put your cost at for a pound of filet?

FWIW, I'm a lazy SOB, but if I wasn't, I would post up my recipe for quasi beef wellington that takes about 5 minutes to prepare...

Well.. to give you the idea, start with hamburger and Brunschweiger (or other pate-like meat paste). Mix the two together, split it up into over-sized meatballs, soak them in sherry, and then wrap it in a puff pastry. 350 for 30 minutes, IIRC. It ain't quite beef wellington, but it's really cheap and easy and fast to make...

wow! $4.99/lb for tenderloin is crazy cheap! I don't think I've ever seen it that cheap at the grocery stores...and I always look for tenderloin also! lol

There was very little waste, so I'd guess around $5.50/lb.

If we just want to talk about filet mignon, let's say there are 10 good filets there and we throw the rest of the meat in the garbage. That works out to $2.50/filet (since I paid $25 for the whole loin). Guessing 6oz/filet, that works out to $6.67/lb of filet.
