Reviewer’s Note: Samples of the products discussed here were provided to me for reviewing purposes at no cost.
The Tender Filet sells premium aged steaks, specialty meats and seafood, and restaurant-quality heat-and-serve meal courses, as well as soups, desserts, and more. I was recently invited to sample its wares , and having been aware of the company for some time beforehand without ever having ordered from it, I responded with genuine enthusiasm and excitement.
I sampled the Sirloin Trio, a three-steak selection consisting of premium cuts of Teriyaki Sirloin, Bacon-wrapped Sirloin, and Bourbon Peppercorn Sirloin steaks. These I prepared to levels of doneness ranging from medium rare to medium well. In every case, I found the meat to be tender and juicy, each steak variety presenting memorable characteristics unique to its style.
The tangy sweetness of the Teriyaki Sirloin, cooked to medium rare, was notable for how deeply its marinade permeated the meat. Whereas some marinades never achieve more than superficial penetration of the meats to which they’re applied, the steaks I received from The Tender Filet tasted of teriyaki seasoning to their core. The Bacon-wrapped Sirloin steaks received the medium-well treatment, and emerged from the oven juicy with good exterior color, faint, firm pinkness in the center upon slicing, and edged in crisp bacon. Were I pressed to select a favorite of the three, however, it would be the Bourbon Peppercorn steaks. Cooked to medium doneness, these steaks exhibited impressive harmony between the sweetness of bourbon and the touch of heat from the peppercorns. Good marinade crusting around the edges of the meat combined with the same thorough flavor penetration that the Teriyaki Sirloin exhibited to lend unique new meaning to the phrase “sweet heat.”
The Tender Filet is a great source of quality meats that are full of flavor and handled with expert care. I make that statement with such unreserved confidence that I’m pleased and excited to feature its product in Flavorful World’s latest giveaway contest.
