For Your Celebration

Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Filet Steak New Zealand (250g)

Horizon Farms
BF165
Buy More, Save More

You get 250g (that's 8.8 ounces) of filet steak cut from the famously expensive tenderloin of beef, the same part the Chateaubriand is cut from. Our steaks are perfectly trimmed and ready for a luxurious cooking experience right at home. The steak is lean and very fine-grained in texture. Cooked medium-rare the steak is incredibly tender - typical for steaks cut from the tenderloin.  Compared to the ribeye and striploin the tenderloin is much leaner, much more tender but less intensive in taste. For best results check our cooking instructions below.

Introducing another premium brand to our family. Ocean Beef from New Zealand. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the islands of New Zealand are famed for their world-leading farmers. This is one of the finest New Zealand Angus beef quality available. Combine the freshest New Zealand grass, the best New Zealand grains, and the best New Zealand sea air - and you get Ocean Beef. But that's not it. At Horizon Farms, we aim for the best: Free-range grass-fed for 18 months on lush green and fresh pastures of New Zealand. Then for 200 days the cows are grain-fed the finest selection of New Zealand-grown (supplied by local farmers only) GMO-free grains and drink sustainable water made by the snow from the Southern Alps in a stress-free coastal environment. At no point are the cows given growth hormones or treated with subtherapeutic antibiotics. See more about the farms below. The Ocean Beef ribeye and striploin steaks have both won the Gold medal at the World Steak Challenge with the following judging criteria: appearance, aroma, color, marbling, consistency of fat trim, tenderness, flavor, succulence.

New Zealand Beef

Our New Zealand beef comes from the Canterbury area of the southern island of New Zealand. The cows are raised on local ranches (referred to as cattle stations in New Zealand) which are family-owned and run. The animals are grass-fed on open pastures their entire lives. Then, 200 days before harvesting, the cows are fed a mix of vegetarian feed consisting of all-locally sourced GMO-free natural grains, silage, hay, molasses, oilseed meals and legumes for a consistent beef flavor and texture. At no point are the animals confined in tight spaces or are force-fed. The finishing feedlots are very spacious and animals are absolutely free to roam on over 6000 square meters. At no point are growth-hormones or antibiotics used.

Beef Filet Steak Recipe Instructions

 Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

Defrost the steak overnight slowly in the fridge or place the sealed pack in cold water for about 2 hours. Once completely defrosted remove from the pack and let the steak openly "breathe" at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Once exposed to oxygen the meat will regain its vivid colors.

Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

In our example, we're using our all-natural bacon to wrap our steak. This gives the filet additional flavor. All you need is butcher twine or cooking twine. Simply use 2-3 slices to wrap the steak. No additional seasoning is required.

Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

First, sear the outside on medium heat until caramelized. Then cook very slowly on low heat and keep turning the steak to make sure it cooks evenly on all sides.

Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

Don't forget to cook the sides as well. Let the bacon juices flow into the steak.

Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

Once the core temperature of the steak has reached 54 degrees Celsius or 130 Fahrenheit take it off the heat and let it cook on residue heat for 5 more minutes before slicing it up.

Ocean Beef Filet Tenderloin Steak

Use a large sharp knife to cut the filet into slices or serve as a portion.

Don't forget to remove the twine. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Enjoy.

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.

Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.

I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.

I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.

I tried a whole chicken for the first time.

Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.

Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (。◕ˇДˇ◕。)/

Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.

Translated from Japanese: If it's this big, it's worth cooking, so I divided it into two parts to eat in a stew and grill it. I enjoyed the unique aroma of lamb. It was fresh and beautiful meat.

Translated from Japanese: It’s a good product for those who like the scent of lamb with good meat quality.

J
Japanese

Translated from Japanese: This is a reorder. I want to make stew, but they don't sell a whole piece of lamb anywhere near me.
It’s delicious even if it’s cut thinly and suits Genghis Khan.

Delicious

Translated from Japanese: Although it’s frozen, if you take the time to thaw it, the meat will be very moist without any unpleasant smell. I boiled it in thyme, chickpea, turmeric, and paprika. Nothing beats this.

Exactly like the picture!

Translated from Japanese: You can enjoy that there is no difference between the picture and the actual amount of meat in person. There’s nothing to complain about if you get this amount for a discounted price! The shop’s correspondence is also good.

I recommend it!

Translated from Japanese: I bought it to have BBQ with friends.
I marinated it for a short time with garlic, rock salt, olive oil and rosemary and then grilled it. It was very soft. It didn’t smell and everyone liked it!
A friend who had been in Australia for a long time praised it as "the most delicious lamb I've ever eaten" and my popularity has gone up haha. The gorgeous appearance and flavor are perfect. I will order again!
Without cutting it, I cooked it from the side of the fat and wrapped it in foil to heat it. After that, I cut it and lightly roasted each cross section and lightly sprinkled lemon and black pepper on top. Easy and super delicious! I recommend it.

Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I'd be happy if the price was a little more reasonable, but it can't be helped if it's a good product!
Thank you!

It was delicious

Translated from Japanese: The meat was very soft and juicy, and it was delicious without any unpleasant smell.
My family who ate lamb for the first time also said it’s tastier than beef! I was impressed. We will order again.

My most hated food turned into my favorite

Translated from Japanese: Previously, lamb meat in Hokkaido was very smelly, so I disliked lamb meat from that point on.
But lately, my wife has been cooking this shop’s meat at home and at first, I refused to eat it. But then I thought, what? This is really lamb? There was no smell, the meat was soft and somehow I ate up everything. I will order again, as it was very very delicious.

Lovely

I had this lamb chops with my boyfriend. At first he was very sceptical because he had lamb once in Hokkaido and it was gross. But after convincing him that high quality lamb isn't tangy, he gave it a try and was stunned. This lamb is really delicious and tender. We both love it

Safe, organic and delicious

Translated from Japanese: It was delicious with a very gentle taste. You can verify the origin of the ingredients and because high quality chicken was used, you can eat with confidence. You can't get a frozen meat pie like this anywhere else. The volume was solid, and I was full with this alone. It’s a meat pie that you want to keep in stock.

Gentle taste

Translated from Japanese: Chicken pie with a natural and gentle taste. There wasn’t a strong taste of unnatural seasonings, so it was very delicious.
I don’t like green peas, but I could eat this pie without the green peas interfering with the taste of other ingredients.
My family is a family of three, so I'd be happy if there were three sold together.

Decided to have this on a regular!

Translated from Japanese: When using my oven, after 35 minutes, the dough on the side of the pie was still white even though the upper part was brown already, but it was delicious anyway. The dough is crispy and the contents are delicious with the scent of laurel, and when you don't have time to cook, you can have it with either salad or soup as a full meal.
If you have lamb sheep meat or minced wild boar, I will buy it!
I would like you to sell frozen puff pastry made from organic flour and butter in the future. You can't go shopping too far in times of Corona, so if you have pie dough made from organically grown ingredients online, you can always make tart with fruits ... Chicken liver pie wrapping ... Please consider it!

Absolutely Delicious!

I love chicken pies and these certainly did not disappoint, from the flaky pastry to the rich, very tasty filling! Highly recommend these delicious pies!

Perfect for lunch and light meals.

Translated from Japanese: One pie is enough to fill you up. The taste was not too strong and it was very delicious.
It seems to be very useful for holiday brunch, and it’s a nice product to have in the freezer.
I want to order it again in the future.
