Berlin, Germany (Gastrosofie). Nothing beats these thin threads, also called fillets, which come from pork or beef and are also called loin. Because this muscle in the lumbar region on both sides of the spine is generally not particularly stressed, the meat is therefore very tender, lean and juicy.
And because this meat only makes up a small part of the animal, it is rare and therefore expensive. Yes, fillet pieces are usually the most expensive pieces of a slaughtered animal.
