The Tender Filet Review and Giveaway

There are certain foods that I reserve for special occasions, celebrations, or just as a treat. Steak and seafood are two foods that come to mind. I certainly don't buy these on a regular basis.  I feel that not enjoying these foods often makes them more important and meaningful when you do eat them. It's okay to treat yourself every once in a while, go ahead!

The Tender Filet makes all of your frozen meat and seafood dreams come true.  If you're looking for premium aged steaks, specialty beef and burgers, and fresh seafood, they have you covered. Of course  chicken, pork, and lamb is also available.  Want something other than meat? No problem! How about trying the breaded veal parmesan cutlets or a country chicken puff? Sounds delicious to me.  Wonderful side dishes, soups and appetizers are available too. Would you like to sink your teeth into a butternut squash risotto, garlic breaded mozzarella sticks or a tomato florentine soup? I know I would! You can't forget about dessert either. End the meal with a piece of decadent triple berry cheesecake or a slice of heavenly citrus cool lemon cake.  It will be one meal you won't soon forget!

I really loved looking at the pictures of all of the available food items for order.  I certainly was in food bliss! Everything looked utterly fabulous. When I was told I could review an item from the website, I was very excited. I knew I wanted to choose something out of the ordinary, something I don't regularly eat. The four, 4oz Filet Mignons made my mouth water and definitely stood out.  I eagerly awaited their arrival.

The meats were very quickly shipped to me and arrived with fabulous garlic butter.  I had never heard of a butter so delicious, and I couldn't wait to try it.  The steaks were vacuum packed sealed and just waiting to meet their match in my oven.  

How fabulous do these look? Go ahead and lick your computer screen, it's perfectly normal and acceptable.

I followed the cooking directions and pretty soon the aroma of Filet Mignons wafted through my kitchen and I felt like I was in a four star restaurant.  It smelled out of this world.  Once they were done, it was time to eat! I served the steaks with seasoned mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus.  This was a true meal fit for a king! 

The meat was perfectly cooked, beyond tender, fresh, and extremely flavorful. They were seasoned well.  Each bite was melt in your mouth delicious and bursting with amazing flavor.  I've not had a steak this good in a while.  Don't be fooled by their size, even though they are only 4 oz, they pack a ton of flavor! 

The garlic butter was also delicious.  I put a little bit on top of my steak.  The garlic flavor was noticeable, but not overly prominent.  It complimented the steak well and brought an extra bit of pizazz to the meal.  I couldn't have asked for a more delicious meal and it certainly was a true treat to enjoy these Filet Mignons.

Christmas is rapidly approaching and a shipment from The Tender Filet would make a wonderful present for a friend or relative.  They will be blown away with the high quality of taste and flavor from something that arrives in the mail to them!
