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

Ocean Beef
BF165

Description

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.

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.

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: 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!

(I ordered) sirloin, flap meat steak and filet mignon

Translated from Japanese: I prepared those three and compared them. My friend liked the sirloin meat. It tastes like steak, my friend said. My husband liked the flap meat steak. He said it tasted like the meat was cut from the best part of the cow. I quickly wrapped it inside a tortilla and ate it like that and even the meat juice sticking to the tortilla was delicious~

Truly different

We bought 10 of these for our garden party last week and each and every person was truly amazed by the quality and the taste. Our chef cooked them to medium and we used your Italian salt. Almost too good to give them to the kids!! We grilled the burgers for them anywy - they were exceptional as well - bravo! My family and I appreciate your business and are very happy to have found healthy and safe meat in Japan. I'd recommend adding more brochures so we can hand them out.
