Our Fillet steaks are cut and trimmed by hand to the highest standard, tender and full of flavour and a great treat for any occasion, guaranteed to give the wow factor to your hearty steak dinner.
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. It’s the meat’s soft texture that is most prized and should be cooked with care so as not to destroy its virtues.
Chef's cooking Tip.
Before cooking steak, take it out of the fridge and let it rest for a couple of hours, to get it to room temperature.
Fry your steak in oil in a smoking hot pan, the intense heat from the pan will create a delicious, meaty brown crust.. Turn it over every 15-20 seconds, so the outside stays hot enough for a crust to form, without the inside overcooking.
Once it’s cooked, let your steak rest for at least five minutes. This holds in the moisture and leaves your steak juicy and tender.
Our beef is carefully aged on the bone for between 21 to 28 days to provide a taste and texture that is truly amazing. Furthermore, unlike many butchers that buy their beef already cut we work with the full carcass meaning we can offer the full range of cuts for the more adventurous cooks.
All of our beef is locally sourced from British Beef cattle, naturally raised on farms recognised for high standards of animal welfare. Your order is prepared here at The Country Victualler by our skilled butchers and delivered to your door fresh, so you can choose between freezing or consuming within a few days.
