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.
This is the smaller version of our 250g (8.8oz) filet mignon steak. This filet steak weighs around 200g (7oz.) and is the ideal steak for special occasions. The tenderloin is the most tender part of all beef cuts. If you are looking for fork-tender and lean steaks - choose filet steaks. For cooking use salt-free butter and sear all sides quickly and then cook v-e-r-y slowly to medium-rare. Season with freshly ground pepper, sea salt, garlic, and fresh thyme, then serve sliced and sprinkle lightly with sea salt flakes. See the cooking 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
Defrost in the fridge overnight or defrost in the water a couple of hours before cooking. Open the package and let the steak breathe for at least 15 minutes.
The color will change to a vivid red. Shortly before cooking, start seasoning with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. We like to add a bit of fresh or dried thyme to our steaks.
100% grass-fed beef is very lean with a high red-meat ratio, especially the tenderloin parts. Use either olive oil or salt-free butter to cook the steak.
The filet steaks need to be cooked very slowly and carefully. We do not recommend more than medium-rare (50 degrees Celsius / 120 degrees Fahrenheit) Turn often and make sure you have an oil splatter screen at hand.
Add garlic and vegetables to the fry-pan and let them cook in the steak juices. Once the steak's internal temperature has reached 50°C or 120°F - turn off the heat and move the steak to a cutting board. The steak will continue to cook on residue heat.
Let the steak rest for 5 minutes.
Slice thinly and serve while still warm.
If needed, sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Enjoy.
