Filet mignon has been my go to. I like the blue cheese filet mignon at the keg.

Great, now I want a steak.

Bernie's in Chicopee has been closed now for since 2022. Shame it was a staple of my diet on Sunday sneaking out of Drill like everyone else to wait in line for a table. It was great for a nice conductor cut of prime rib.

At home it's a porterhouse which has a filet and a ribeye.

Porterhouse is filet and NY strip. Also, I think he was referring to Bern's in the Tampa area but might be wrong.

A porterhouse is a T bone w a larger filet + short loin(NY strip, not ribeye). Strip loins come from under the back bone of the cow whereas the Ribeye which comes from the rib usually near the neck.

That's a great cut when you're feeding a table. It's one I haven't seen in a standard supermarket meat case since the 60s in San Francisco. Maybe that's related to the price of filet mignon in recent decades, or maybe it's a cut that is commonly available due to demand only in certain parts of the country.

I ran into that with butterflied pork chops, which I've only seen in the case in Arkansas. That was a long time ago, too, though. (I should probably have posted this in the 'You know you're old when...' thread, huh? )

There are many steak houses where all steaks are prime except for the filet (because they know that real steak lovers don't order it anyway). The filet is tender sure but it has so much less fat that it is the least flavorful cut. My wife and I have made some good filets but usually that is because they are coated in herb butter or some other extra fat.

I always cringe when people order a well done filet, they might as well order a can of dogfood.

So ‘real’ steak lovers prefer eating fat over meat? Or, smother it in some other fat like butter or oil to make it taste better?

I hear those ‘real’ steak lovers also prefer medium rare to well done with a side of ketchup

I’ll take a filet, blue rare any day every day over other cuts, less ‘flavored fat’ and actual meat taste. All it needs is some salt and pepper rub and good to go.

I cringe when anyone orders at a restaurant or asks me to cook anything more than rare…if you want more then that, I’ll cook you a burger (ground trimmings from the filets I cut) anywhere from medium rare to hockey puck.

Thanks for correction thought it was ribeye. Either way for at home that's my choice

Sure I didn't have to eat the entire rib eye in one sitting but taking home rib eye to have as a leftover it just wasn't quite the same in leftover form.
After I cook a Costco NY or Rib Eye I cut it in half (acutally 60/40) and share it with my wife. That's how we get portion size down to roughly a Filet weight.

We prefer to call it properly-marbled for ribeyes, where evenly spread tiny pockets of fat enhance the flavor of the surrounding meat.....

Poser. Masking all that meat flavor in salt and pepper. Might as well put some A1 on that bitch.

As an actual real steak lover I prefer mine still on the cow.

I have a friend who orders his filet "so rare that a veterinarian can still save it" every time that I'm in a restaurant with him.....

Nothing quite like a good ribeye, medium rare of course. Also, anything beyond medium is ruined (I'm being very lax here ) and can't be saved

Filet medium rare!

I smoked 12 pounds of beef tenderloin for Easter and it was amazing! Pretty much 12lbs of filet! Pricey but sooooo damn good!

OK, which one of you yeah-whos changed my order. I opened up the box and found 2 dry aged, 4 NY, and 4 Ribeyes. So I went back, checked my email, and sure enough.

I have several hundred "points" with them now. I usually wait for some sort of special then go and stock a few morsels in the freezer. It's nice that they are individually vacuum packed. I can match people with steaks if someone randomly comes by.
Wife really likes the zip-up insulated bags that things get shipped in, too
