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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
Don't forget to cook the sides as well. Let the bacon juices flow into the 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.
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.
Translated from Japanese: I got this as a Mother’s Day gift for my mother whom I couldn’t meet. The meat was soft and juicy and really delicious, she said. It’s also possible to order this warmly and with no worries as present for staff members. I think they package everything carefully, too. Thank you very much. I think I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: It’s like eating the steak of a famous steak house! I ate one steak with salt and wasabi. I used a fish grill and grilled it on both sides on low flame. After wrapping it up in aluminum foil, I turned the flame up and grilled it thoroughly on both sides. It turned out perfectly rose-pink. I ordered again right away. This time, I got a filet, sirloin, ribeye and salt set. I think I will look forward to doing this once a month.
This steak is full of charm
Translated from Japanese: Both, wagyu and American beef are of very high quality when it comes to their tenderness, the flavor of the lean meat and the sweetness of the fat. Although I think that the center of wagyu is the tastiest. I wonder if it’s because it’s grass-fed beef? Just like grain-fed, pure wagyu, this beef also doesn’t feel like it has a lot of fat on it and I think this is optimal to eat it as steak.
Translated from Japanese: I absolutely like this beef more than the beef from the famous beef restaurant of my local area. Marbled steak is always really soft and juicy, so it’s a light dish. Although I ate a lot, I don’t feel guilty. I’m happy I ate something healthy. I usually don’t like the smell of beef, but this one didn’t have any. My father’s teeth are weak, but he ate this ribeye happily. I think it’s easy to eat for children, too. While writing this comment, I feel like eating it again!
Translated from Japanese: I’ve reached that age where I hate very oily meat. It’s my first time ordering American beef online, but the concentrated, original taste of the meat was amazing.
Translated from Japanese: I don't like that wagyu beef is so marbled, so I bought this as a trial
The deliciousness and tenderness of lean meat is wonderful and it has no odor.
I would like to buy it again.
Translated from Japanese: I came across a steak that I can buy with confidence. Even if you defrost it in the fridge, not a lot of water is dripping. The meat quality is also very well balanced. I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: Although it's grass-fed beef, it was delicious without any odor because it’s grain-finished.
Even after thawing and cooking it immediately, it was not dry and soft. It's expensive because it's the highest quality, but it was meat that made me want to eat it again.
Translated from Japanese: It had the feeling of “American beef”.
Delicious meat with no strange taste!
Translated from Japanese: Because the meat was so thick, it’s not enough to only cook two sides, but the sides have to be carefully grilled as well to reach the medium rare state. It’s an unique article that tastes good from the first bite, but is even more delicious when you chew it. When you say “ah” with the food in your mouth, a nice aroma comes out and the meat’s taste spreads evenly. With just salt and pepper, nothing else is needed, I grilled it in a simple way. I thought the fat on the meat would smell, but a properly raised cow is different after all. I’m happy for having had something delicious!
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!
Thick sliced steak
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.
This meat is soft
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.
Translated from Japanese: Very delicious!
Translated from Japanese: I’m glad it was considerably big.
I wonder if it would be even more delicious if I grilled it more?
Translated from Japanese: It was really soft and delicious! I ate it with Texas spice. I could also eat it without worrying about the fat on the meat. I will order again!
Translated from Japanese: It’s the real thing.
An American taste
Translated from Japanese: I think that American beef is the most delicious. Japanese oily beef tastes bad, but the taste of this one is splendid from the first bite. I grilled it carefully on low heat and ate it rare. It was a great success. I think I will order again.
