One whole pound of wonderful cuts (tips) of the tenderloin. Why would you cut up the tenderloin into pieces instead of making filet steaks, you might ask? These are actually the bits and pieces from our filet mignons and chateaubriand roasts. When the experienced steak cutters at the Morgan Ranch processing plant (miss) cut the steaks under the required specifications it goes right into this bag.
Compared to the regular steak cubes that we are also offering these come only from the tenderloin of beef which is the most tender, most sought after and therefore the most expensive cut. These are way too good to be used in stews and dishes that require the meat to be cooked for a longer period. Use as-is and handle these as steaks - cook to medium rare and only use sea salt and freshly ground pepper. So soft, you can cut these with a fork. Also an excellent choice for vegetable skewers. The pack contains cubes and strips from 2-5cm (1-2 inches). Check our recipe below.

Free-range pasture-raised with love and care by the Morgans in the heart of Nebraska. Preferred by first-class steak houses and several Michelin starred establishments worldwide.

Instructions & Cooking Tips
Fully defrost the tenderloin cuts and place in a bowl. You'll also need diced potatoes, mushrooms, paprika powder, cumin seeds, black pepper, and olive oil.
Quality food requires quality ingredients. Always use fresh spices. In this case, use cumin seeds and a mortar and pestle to coarsely grind the cumin seeds.
Next, you'll need evenly diced potatoes. Place in a bowl and mix with olive oil, paprika powder, ground cumin seeds, freshly ground pepper, and sea salt. Mix well. The trick is to use coarsely ground spices for a more intensive taste experience.
The same goes for the tenderloin cuts. Use extra virgin olive oil, coarse ground pepper, and sea salt. Mix well.
Heat up a regular non-stick frypan (no cast iron skillet) and throw in the potatoes. Use medium to high heat - don't burn the potatoes. The potatoes should be cooking on the olive oil and should not run dry. If you hear the sizzling stop, add a half cup of water and let it steam, keep repeating until the thickest potato dice is soft to the core. If you use a lid you'll make mash potatoes. If you want crispy potatoes, cook without a lid.
While the potatoes cook, prepare another fry-pan or cast-iron skillet. Use medium to high heat and add the meat.
Keep turning the meat. Tenderloin is best served as medium-rare. However, even if overcooked, the tenderloin cuts will remain tender. Note that smaller strips and cubes will cook faster than the larger cubes. Take them off the heat earlier. A few minutes before finishing add vegetables. Allow them to soak the juices from the meat. Slightly sprinkle with ground pepper and sea salt.
Take the cubes off the heat and let the vegetables in for a few more minutes. Optionally you can also add onions and caramelize them on high heat at the end.
Place on a plate and serve. If you are serving children cut back on the black pepper as it might be too spicy for the little ones.
The tenderloin cubes are fork-tender and don't require a knife. Enjoy.
