Filet americain is a variety of steak tartare made from raw, finely-ground beef, which is mixed with sauce and is thus used as a spread. The sauce is an important ingredient in terms of the filet americain flavor, and may vary between recipes. It is popular as a sandwich spread, or as a party snack on toast. This product is often eaten in this way in particular in the Benelux.
There are many stories circulating which try to explain the origin of the name 'filet americain'. Though this name might lead you to believe otherwise, filet americain is unlikely to be an American product, knowing that finely-ground raw meat served in this way is in no way popular in America. The recipe would have already existed in terms of finely-ground tartare, but would only take on its current form after a specific sauce was brought over to Europe by Americans.
