Fillet Steak – Worth the extra money

Taken from the tenderloin, a fillet of beef is often considered the most sought after cut of beef, also making it the most expensive. The extremely tender texture of the beef is the most sought after quality.

Discover more qualities of the cut here:

“The most prized cut of beef for many, the fillet is extremely tender and suits quick cooking. It is very lean with almost no fat running through it, which means it has less flavour than other cuts; it’s the meat’s soft texture that is most prized. It is usually the most expensive piece of beef available and should be cooked with care so as not to destroy its virtues. A whole fillet of beef will weigh around 2kg/4 1/2lbs and can serve 8-10 people.”
