The cocoa espresso brings a memorable flavor to this filet, while the chipotle glaze gives a finish that is perfect for the filet’s tenderness.
Filet mignon comes from the small end of the tenderloin (called the short loin), which is found on the back rib cage of the animal. This area of the animal is not weight-bearing, so the connective tissue is not toughened by exercise. The result is extremely tender meat.
You will receive all ingredients fully prepped, sliced, and diced. The vegetables will be par-cooked. The protein (filet mignon) will be trimmed and ready for you to cook.
The total time from box to plate is less than 15 minutes.
