We love adding compound butter to our signature filet mignon. Filet mignon comes from the heart of the tenderloin, aged 21 days to perfection, and is steak so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. Adding a pat of compound butter adds richness and signature flavor to your filet mignon.

 

These compound butters can be used for more than just steak. The roasted garlic butter is great on seafood and any of them would make a great spread on your favorite bread. Whip up on our recipes and experience the difference for yourself.
