Here is a product that caught my eye at a local supermarket in Carson City Nevada. It is a Beef Tenderloin Filet. It is wrapped in bacon. It comes in a very convienent 6 ounce package. The best part about this little hunck of beef is it only cost $3.98. I have never heard of this Company Ledbetter. At 3.98 I picked up 4 for research purposes.
I got it home and opened the package. It smelled fine. I added a little salt and pepper. I fired up a cast iron pan to a fairly high heat. I seared it on it sides to crisp up the bacon. I then place one side on the pan. I let it cook for aprox 4 minutes. I flipped it over and cooked for another 2 minutes. The total cooking time was close to 9 minutes. It came out a perfect Medium Rare.
It tasted great! It was very tender. The bacon was not memoreable but good. I would definately buy these again. I was a little shocked at the price. Something just doesn't seem right.
I tried searching for the Ledbetter company. I did not find out much. I then started to read the package. I think sometimes it is better to just not know. It contains 15 percent of a flavor enchancing solution. Sodium Lactate, beef flavor, salt, beef fat/powder, gelatin autolyzed yeast extract, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite, trisodium phosphate, maltodextrin and soy/wheat protein. I think a warning label should be posted "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
