Very tender cut from thigh.  Similar to a flank steak.  Great for grilled or pan-seared steak, kebabs, and fajita steak strips.  The flat filet is unique in that it has a thin layer of fat on top which adds to the taste and moisture.  Select cuts ranging from 6 oz to 18 oz.


  • For optimal flavor and consistency, grill (or pan fry) the Flat Filet to an internal temperature of 125-130F degrees.
  • Then wrap in foil and let the filet rest for 5 to 10 minutes. This will allow it to continue to cook and marinate in its own juices.
  • You can also cook the Fan Filet to medium (130-140F degrees) if you prefer.
  • For seasoning, you can go simple (olive oil, salt, pepper), use a dry rub, or use a marinade—whatever you prefer.
