8 oz. beef brisket = 10.25 oz. filet mignon = 615 calories
From holiday meals to New Year’s Eve dinners, both brisket and filet often make an appearance on the December menu—and both are caloric, as expected. Then again, to equal the amount of calories in a respectable 8 ounces of brisket, you’d have to eat a hearty 10.25-oz. hunk of filet. Isn’t it nice when New Year’s resolutions write themselves?
