BEEF CUTS

TENDERLOIN / FILLET

The fillet is located on the inside of the loin, contains practically no muscle, and is characterized by its fine texture, tenderness, and low-fat content. It is a luxurious part, the most expensive cut of beef. It accounts for only 2% of the entire dressed carcass. Care needs to be taken as the color of the meat degrades rapidly.
