The tenderloin is the most lean, tender part of the animal... but Wagyu Filet Mignon is special. Wagyu cattle are naturally predisposed to develop more marbling, that succulent webbing of creamy, high-quality fat.

These filets are sourced from Colorado and are quite delicious. 

Our filets are hand-cut as Chateaubriand and are just amazing... you could eat these with a butter knife... thats how soft they are. 

BMS7+? HOW DOES THAT WORK?

Steers are graded based on the amount and distribution of marbling in the ribeye muscle at the cut surface after the carcass has been ribbed between the 12th and 13th ribs. That means that the Filet Mignon is graded based on the marbling of the Ribeye (graders do not inspect Tenderloins or ANY other muscle... but the RibEye)

Filet Mignon by default is not a cut that marbles significantly, which is why we group Filet Mignon from steers graded BMS7 to BMS9 in the same category. It will have a different flavor and texture than lower grade Filet Mignon but the marbling will still be hit or miss. The only Filet Mignon that is consistently marbled (and may possibly be the best steak anyone can eat... is the A5 grade of Wagyu Filet Mignon. However, you could say it does not really taste like Filet Mignon).

Do note that marbling is not a driving indicator of tenderness, hence not all beef graded "Prime" is equal. (https://meatnbone.com/blogs/the-clever-cleaver/understainding-beef-marbling-tenderness-indicators)
