Why is filet mignon more expensive than other cuts of steak?

Filet Mignon: Tender

Filet mignon is the tenderest cut of beef. It is also the most expensive steak available. The reason that filet mignon is priced higher than other cuts of meat is that one cow will only produce about five pounds of this fillet. The best way to cook filet mignon is to cut it into one or two inch portions. Then, wrap the portion in bacon and grill. This cut needs little seasoning and is best served medium rare.

Filet mignon can also be roasted, broiled or pan fried.
