Preparing Filet Mignon
This cut is so tender that it should never be cooked beyond medium-rare. The longer you cook it, the less tender and drier it becomes.
Use a dry, high heat method such as grilling, roasting, pan-frying, or broiling.
Cutting into the meat to check doneness lets juice escape. Use the touch method. Touch the meat. If it feels soft and leaves an imprint, it is rare. If it is soft but slightly resilient, it is medium-rare. When it feels firm, it is overdone.
Filets are a thick steak, so grill the sides as well as the top and bottom.

Well, we tried your steaks for the first time the other night.
I must say they were SUPERB. The filet mignon and the porterhouse.
I will be ordering all my steaks from you in the future.
Thanks for taking the time to make your steaks special.
I've tried other mail order or online beef and steak houses without success.
I'm glad I didn't give up. Third time was the charm.
PRIME RIB, LAMB CHOPS, FILET MIGNON, YOU GUYS HAVE THEM ALL, AND I LOVE THEM ALL, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.-- Ali S
There is only one thing better than a Filet and that is another Filet!
My husband and I love, love, love your filet mignons! My husband grills or cooks them medium rare and they are so amazing! He's now ordered the Kobe filets as well as lobster tails for us to try!-- Anonymous
My husband grilled us each a 10 oz. filet tonight and they were PERFECT. We LOVED them. Decided we would rather have these steaks so I will need to order another 12 of them soon. LOVE THESE FILETS!!!-- Anonymous
Had the best filet ever!!! So glad we ordered them and the ones wrapped in bacon!!! Best ever!!
We have recently ordered your filet mignon's and wanted you to know that we think they are wonderful. Better than Omaha or any supermarkets. We certainly will be ordering them again soon.

In the past 40 years I have ordered steaks and burgers from Omaha. Thursday, I received my first order from KC and last night I grilled one of the Filets. That was one of best Filets I have ever eaten, anywhere, much less at home. I will be ordering from KC from now on. Thank you.-- Charles C
These are the top of the top for quality. We only go around once might as well be first class. I just bet one bite from this filet and you will want to smack your local butcher.-- Charles H
Just wanted to say that the order of steaks that we sent to my brother-in-law as a "thank you" for helping our daughter sell her car was a HUGE success! His wife is the daughter of a butcher, she knows good meat, and she said the filets were the BEST steak she'd ever tasted. Thanks so much.-- Chuck B
I just have to say I tell EVERYONE about you and when they mention "omaha steaks" I tell them those are the ones you feed to the dog.-- Debra B.
My son received his order Today, and is quite pleased, already cooked up one of the Filets and happily replied, "Delicious!!" For a young man in ROTC, He and his Fellow Marines couldn't be happier! Thank You for great steaks and a great delivery service!!-- Dolores C
This is my 4th order in the last 6 months. From the fabulous filets and lobster tails for mother's day, the exceptional carrot cake, the tender ribeyes ...everything is amazing.-- Helene
Bravo! We have always ordered Omaha Steaks, and were quite happy with them. This year, for the first time, we recieved your catalog and decided to try your product. We liked the idea of the flat rate shipping, as opposed to, the more you order the more we charge for shipping. Tonight we decided to cook dinner at home, instead of going out for a rushed, over priced new year's eve dinner. So, this afternoon, I defrosted two of your filet mignons, pre-baked some potatoes in the micro-wave and wrapped them in foil and waited for cooking time. About an hour and a half before dinner, I seasoned the steaks with your seasoning blend and put them back in the refirgerator. I pulled them out about 45 minuteds before cooking time. My husband pre-heated the grill, put the potatoes on for about 12 minutes and then put the steaks on. He cooked them according to your directions for medium and we just finished the best steak dinner that we have ever had! From now on, it is only Kans as City Steak Company for us! Since Christmas, we have had tonights steaks, as well as the tenderloin tips that I quick seared and served with mushrooms, sweet onions and pea pods, over a bed of saffron seasoned basmati rice. I couldn't be happier! We will be enjoying your tenderloin roast in the near future and, if weather continues to hold in the North East, some of your gourmet burgers will be hitting the grill really soon!

Your Filet Mignon is the most tender that I have ever tasted. Both my wife and I enjoy them. The Filets beat your competitor by a mile.
-- John C
Just wanted you to know we received filets from my sister who lives in K.C. and loved them!!! We are now placing our first order for a prime rib for Christmas and an add on of Ribeyes. I'm sure they will be of the highest quality like our filets were. It's refreshing to not have to use a steak knife! Thank you so much!!!!-- Karalie R
...grilled all 6 Filets, and there was not one crumb left...and the flavor was outstanding. ... did not even use steak knives...just had to let you know that Kansas City Steaks rocks!!!!.
We love your filets, and they make excellent gifts!-- Lisa K
I recently purchased two orders, one for my Daughter and one for myself. I ordered the large trimmed filets and 4 filet roasts for myself. Needless to say we are in steak country here in Texas, without a doubt these filets are the most outstanding steaks that I have ever eaten. As we would say here in Texas they are as "TENDER AS A MOTHER'S LOVE". You are a quality company and I would recommend you to anyone at anytime. Keep up the good work.-- Louis A
I have placed three orders with you so far. Twice to my daughter & once to my brother. I wanted to let you know how much both families enjoyed your products. According to my daughter & her family the filet mignons were the best they have ever had. I sent my brother & his family the turkey & ham for Thanksgiving. They had approx. 20 people at their house for dinner & everyone there wanted to know where they got the ham & turkey. Thank you for having such wonderful products. It makes gift giving such a special occasion. I know I will be back!-- Marie L
My mother shipped me a filet and lobster combo as a Christmas gift. I just grilled them yesterday and those were some of the best filets I've ever had. I shared them with 4 of my friends they were equally impressed.-- Mark
I sent my friend Rich four of the filet mignons. He followed the directions precisely and they cooked perfectly. He said that those were among the best filet mignons that he has ever had. Thanks for providing extremely high quality (and very tasty) beef.-- Matt K
Last night we enjoyed your 8oz. filets. My wife and daughter said they were the most tender and the best filets ever. I just wanted to drop your company this compliment.-- Matthew B
Dear K C Steaks...
I'm not one to write letters much to praise anything because it often comes back to haunt you later with disappointment...however, I want you to know how outstanding your filet mignons have been. I just ordered another batch of 8 oz super trimmed and some smaller ones as well for the kiddies. Lets just say I have bought many steaks in the past from other sources before I tried yours (sorry)...My big mistake! I haven't sampled all your items but the 8 oz super trimmed are absolutely wonderful. You have a very pleased customer here. Ps: The steakburgers are great as well!-- Neal P
This is probably the best steak (one of your 10 oz Filets) I’ve ever enjoyed! Following your instructions; i.e.,…season, bring to room temperature… I could not cut it with a table knife because it pulling apart! I’ve heard the terms, “melt in your mouth..buttery soft and tender,” this steak gives that meaning. Thank you!-- Oscar P
Absolutely love your filets. So does my son....beautiful steaks!!-- Randy B
I ordered 64 8 OZ filets to serve for our company Christmas dinner. I cooked them last night and they were great. The steaks were head and shoulders above other mail order steaks I've used and less expensive to boot.-- Ray F
The best filet mignon I have ever eaten.-- Robin B
We are always so pleased with our orders. The filets are the best we have ever had and will only continue to order from you. Your products are the very best, and have just placed another order.
My daughter and her husband sent us six 8oz. filets, we were very thankful and most impressed with the quality...We will definitely be ordering in the near future.
I just wanted to thank you for providing the best Filet Mignon steaks I have ever had. They are absolutely magnificent and as a result, I will be a lifetime customer.-- Tom L
