This is the kind of steak that sits high up on the expensive side of the menu of any upper-scale steakhouse. The filet steak made for special occasions that you get dressed up for. Please treat with respect. Less than 4% of the cow yield filet tenderloins.

Defrost the steak in the fridge overnight or in cold water. Once completely defrosted open the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel. Let the steak come to room temperature.
High-quality meat does not need any steak seasoning, sauces, or marinade. Simply season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use high-quality butter and heat up the frypan or skillet to medium heat. You need to hear the steak sizzle.
Turn often. Cook the steak to medium-rare for the best experience. Take the steak off the heat once the internal temperature reaches 50 degrees Celsius (125 degrees Fahrenheit).
Allow the steak to rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes as it continues to cook internally on residual heat.
Immediately slice and serve while warm for a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!
These are definitely worth it, we just can’t get this quality of meat on Okinawa.
Translated from Japanese: Safe, secure and delicious! There was a prejudice that grass-fed meat smells, but it doesn’t at all!
I’ll order again!
Translated from Japanese: If you want a thick sliced steak, I recommend small filets more than sirloin or rib roasts.
Only if possible, use a thick iron plate and grill it slowly, it won’t go wrong for sure.
Translated from Japanese: While wondering if this had been a waste of money, I grilled it for a BBQ. I put it on the grill and topped it off with the sea salt that is sold here as well. After adding some pepper as well, I grilled it on low heat. Once the entire meat had changed its color, I broiled it right in the middle of the grill on the highest heat. When I cut it into pieces it was perfectly medium-rare. I thought it was an exaggeration that you can even cut it with chopsticks, but it was really soft enough to work. When you chew the meat the delicious taste spreads in your mouth bit by bit. At first, I thought the meat is expensive, but now I agree (with the price). Although I didn’t grill it in a frypan, I think it was good I gave the BBQ grill a try.
