You get a filet steak cut from the famously expensive tenderloin of beef, the same part the Chateaubriand is cut from. Choose between 200g (7.0oz) and 250g (8.8oz). 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.
Grass-fed, grain-finished beef from either New Zealand or Australia. The cows are raised in a free-range, stress-free environment with plenty of green grass. They are fed the finest selection of local GMO-free grains for 130 days prior to harvest which gives the beef a rich flavor and deep marbling. At no point are the cows given growth hormones or treated with subtherapeutic antibiotics. See more about the farms below.

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: Both of my parents loved it.
It was very tender and had no smell at all!
I’d like to try other meat parts as well.
I’m very satisfied with the fast delivery, too!
Translated from Japanese: It was soft and had a good taste. As expected.
I will buy it again.
Translated from Japanese: Each of the Horizon Farms fillet steaks is attractive and very tasty, but my favorite is this New Zealand grain-finished meat.
I’m fascinated by the juicy, tender lean meat with a moderate (very well-balanced) fat portion. I cooked it medium rare, buttered it as soon as I cut it and served it with red wine.
The butter I used was Calpis butter (sorry, Horizon Farms). The smooth and transparent flavor of this butter goes well with the lean meat.
I think Burgundy's red fruit-based Pino Noir is the best wine, better than the Bordeaux type. You can have a delicious and luxurious time with the meat and wine together.
Translated from Japanese: The filets here are soft enough to justify the price. I cooked this steak on both sides with garlic and olive oil, wrapped it in foil and placed in a toaster for 7/8 minutes until medium-rare.
I often use it when I have guests!
Translated from Japanese: Just as expected, the taste was good. A little expensive though.
