The Juicy Details
As the source of filet mignon, wagyu beef tenderloin is the culinary standard of luxury and decadence. Known for superior marbling and tenderness, no cut of beef combines savoriness and texture like the tenderloin.
Whether you're looking to dazzle friends and family with an in-house steakhouse experience or you're celebrating your latest achievement, Good Silver's American Wagyu Beef Tenderloin is the ultimate way to treat yourself and those that matter most.
As with all Good Silver's steaks, we recommend you take your wagyu beef tenderloins out of the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes before cooking to bring them to room temperature. These pieces of perfection require nothing more than salt and pepper to bring the beef flavor to life.
- Thoroughly heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with a tablespoon of oil and three tablespoons of butter. Once the butter melts, add your seasoned wagyu beef tenderloin.
- Sear for three minutes on one side. Flip and sear for another three minutes for an ideal medium-rare 135 degree internal temperature.
- Remove from the skillet and rest for five to seven minutes to let juices redistribute.
For an even more exceptionally lavish tasting experience, top your filet with crab and hollandaise for Filet Oskar or a peppercorn cream sauce a la steak au poivre.
For a light, crisp contrast to the meaty tenderness of wagyu beef tenderloin, a classic Caesar salad is a terrific option. For a traditional steakhouse experience, it's hard to top starchy baked potatoes or crispy, salty potato pancakes. Look to bacon-wrapped asparagus or sauteed mushrooms with garlic to bring more earthy flavors to your palette.
When indulging in something as pleasing as Good Silver's American Wagyu Beef Tenderloin, settle for no less than the best drink accompaniment. Italy's prized Barolo, France's world-famous Bordeaux, or a Napa cabernet are bold and beautiful pairings. However, Pinot Noir is more delicate and lets the steak remain in the spotlight. A light lager is a refreshing choice for beer lovers that don't want to overpower their steak. A fine scotch, classic martini, or negroni are all excellent imbibing options for those that prefer liquor. Now, all that's left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
