Our new-comer, very hard to come by in Japan - but we've made it possible. 100% grass-fed pasture-raised beef from Australia - the land of grass-fed beef. This is not only 100% grass-fed beef, but this is also 100% free of antibiotics and 100% free of growth hormones and 100% free of GMOs - if you are looking for clean 100% grass-fed and 100% grass-finished beef - there is nothing better than this. Great Southern beef is produced in the southern areas of Australia, where year-round rainfall coupled with Australia’s beautiful sunshine, yield exceptional pastures for cattle to graze on.
One cut of the tenderloin often referred to as the Chateaubriand - basically a gigantic filet steak. You can either cut the roast into smaller steak medallions (filet mignons) or cook the roast as is and then serve sliced. This is the ideal roast for special occasions and the holiday season, best suited for a gathering. The tenderloin is the most tender part of all beef cuts. If you are looking for fork-tender and lean roasts or steaks - choose tenderloin cuts. For roasting, you'll need an oven. First, season, then sear all sides in butter in the frying pan on very high heat, then wrap in aluminum foil and slowly roast in an oven at 180°C (350°F) for approx. 40 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 50°C (120°F). Or cut into smaller steaks and cook in the fry-pan or skillet. Everyone loves to have their own steak. Please note that this roast is cut from the whole tenderloin as is - it may have remaining tendon or fat that we recommend to remove before cooking. See the instructions below.
Although we prefer and recommend beef from cows that have been grass-fed and then finished on natural grain feed for the superior quality, tenderness, and taste (see our Morgan Ranch Beef) - we understand that 100% grass-fed beef can be a preference for the health-conscious. So we bring you the very best quality available from Australia. 100% grass-fed beef has indeed higher concentrations of the following nutritions: antioxidants, vitamins, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and long-chain omega-3 fats mostly found in fish. It also has less fat overall.

Instructions & Cooking Tips
For roasting, completely defrost the roast slowly in the fridge. Remove from the packaging and let it rest on the countertop for at least 15 minutes to reach close to room temperature. The color changes to vivid red.
In case you are planning to prepare filet steaks from the roast, trim as much tendon, silverskin, and fat as possible. You will end up with 6 or more wonderful filet mignons and a bunch of smaller steaks and off-cuts.
Handle as regular steaks. See cooking instructions for filet mignon steaks at the bottom of the page here.
If you prefer a large roast instead of smaller steaks, follow this: Trim off excess fat, silverskin, and tendon. Tie the roast for a more even shape when roasting. Season with coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Optionally add garlic powder and dried thyme leaves to the roast. Prepare a skillet or a frying pan, add salt-free butter, and turn the heat to the hottest possible.
All we want to do is sear the outside of the roast before roasting it in the oven. So the frying pan or skillet needs to be extremely hot so that the outside becomes caramelized and crispy within seconds.
Cook on every side for less than 10 seconds. Turn often. Make sure the range hood is turned on. This will create a lot of fumes.
Lightly cover the roast in aluminum foil (keep it open!) and place it on an oven tray.
Preheat the oven to 180°C and place the tray in the middle for approx. 40 minutes. Depending on your oven size and type of oven, it may take more or less. To be sure not to overcook this beautiful piece measure with a meat thermometer every 15 minutes.
In the meanwhile cook (better: steam) the vegetables. There are many choices such as mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts or mixed vegetables, etc. For extra taste, cook the vegetables in the same frying pan that was used for the sear.
Once the core of the roast has reached 50°C (120°F Fahrenheit) take the roast out of the oven, remove the aluminum foil and let it rest on a cutting board for about 10 minutes.
Use the juices from the oven pan to make beef gravy sauce. Simply add flour and keep stirring. Add salt and pepper (taste first before adding). If the sauce is not thick enough add a cube of beef stock. If it is too thick, add water.
Slice the roast on the dining table in front of your guests or family. Make sure to use a long sharp knife.
The perfectly cooked roast is evenly cooked medium-rare from outside to inside.
Add vegetables or mashed potatoes and beef gravy sauce. Sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy.
