Prime Center Cut Chateaubriand
DESCRIPTIVE QUALITIES: A Chateaubriand, also known as a Filet Mignon roast, tenderloin roast, or beef tenderloin, is a decadent cut of beef that is perfect for holidays or any special occasion. A traditional Chateaubriand is one of the most tender cuts of beef and often the most expensive cut of beef you can find on the market.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: The secret of the tenderness of the Chateaubriand is where it is located on the animal. Chateaubriand is an extremely moist tenderloin roast consisting of Filet Mignon and the larger tenderloin sub-primal.
