Use trimmings, for stir fries, hot pot, or grind for out of this world mini sliders!  Enjoy by suggested date on packaging. If not utilizing the entire tenderloin for your gathering, wrap remaining steaks or roast in parchment paper and then plastic wrap and keep refrigerated. If circumstances prohibit you from enjoy in a few days plan to freeze. We recommend a vacuum sealer with heavy duty bags to protect meat.

Recipe Ideas

Top chefs who prepare these for 5 star restaurants recommend carving into "petit" filets by trimming the 'Tip and Tail"  but please reserve for you and yours. This will make a fabulous topper for a lunch salad, a sandwich fit for a king or cut into bits for stir fry or hot pot. Then carve into approximately 1 inch filets (6 oz is plenty for average appetite). This is very rich meat- you will be surprised!  Sear quickly in HOT skillet then pop in a 350 degree oven for just a few minutes to bring to rare or Medium Rare. Depending on your tenderloin you may wish to split the thicker end horizontally to maintain the diameter to have smaller steaks. See RECIPES for Truffled Pasta as a great accompaniment .
