What is Reserve grade? Reserve grade steaks from Silver Fern Farms are steaks of the rarest quality. Naturally, 100% grass-fed beef is typically on the leaner side, but with careful breeding and a little luck, you have some exceptions. So exceptional, only the best breeds of cow earn this grade. Only 4 in 100 cows are deemed eligible for this marking. These cows are reared and bred with selectiveness at every step, from highly dedicated and experienced farmers.
Our New Zealand beef is sourced from Silver Fern Farms, New Zealand, and is 100% free of antibiotics, growth hormones, and GMOs. The cows have been raised with the ability to graze freely as nature intended, reducing stress for optimal animal welfare. See more information and actual images of the farms below.

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.
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. Turn often and make sure you have an oil splatter screen at hand.
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.
Translated from Japanese: Really tender and tasty lean meat.
I purchased this for a family member with a strong allergy.
Despite the extreme restrictions, there were no bad reactions at all and we were able to enjoy our food with a peace of mind. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Translated from Japanese: My mother was very pleased with the taste. I will try the other fillets next 🎵
Translated from Japanese: I always buy Australian and other New Zealand fillets, which are all delicious.
Very soft, juicy and very satisfying. I’m glad that the types of fillets have increased.
