This Choice Fillet is incredibly smooth with a soft texture and subtle flavour. When you cook the Choice Fillet whole muscle, you are guaranteed a juicy steak with just the right amount of resistance – so tender you can cut it with your fork. Our US Grain Fed Choice Fillet is heavily marbled producing a juicy, tasty and succulent piece of meat. The marbling ensures a delicate buttery flavour perfect for a treat.
The Choice Fillet is cut from the short loin of the cow, a section from the lower back between the ribs and the round. When the short loin is cut as an entire strip, it is called the "tenderloin." When sliced into individual steaks, it is called "filet mignon" and "chateaubriand."
You need to focus on the appearance of the fillet steaks. A good fillet steak should be bright red and fresh looking with little or no fat. 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.
