Is filet mignon kosher for Ashkenazim?
Absolutely Yes. Please go to our Kosher page and read all about it.
Why are these cuts more expensive than my local kosher supermarket?
Besides our meats being only pasture raised and hormone free, these cuts of meat are all hindquarter meat which is not even sold at your local kosher markets. Hindquarter cuts are more expensive than forequarter cuts even in the non kosher market. Also, our cuts of meat are USDA Choice graded and above which is a superior quality than you often find at the butcher.
How much should I order per person?
If it's your main dish, then figure 12oz - 16oz per person.
If you have other courses and it's not the main event, then consider approximately 8oz per person.
Can I freeze my order when I receive my shipment?
Yes. You may freeze it again. Even if it arrives slightly thawed.
