GENERAL INFO: AUS BEEF STRIPLOIN WESTERN AUS
Buttery, juicy, mild — one bite and you will understand why it's such a popular cut. Filet mignon needs little fussing — just season it well with salt and pepper, then sear it in a very hot pan (cast iron is best). We like to serve it with a very simple sauce of red wine flavored with shallots and garlic.
