What Cut Of Beef is Fillet?

While a beef fillet can sometimes mean any boneless cut of meat, a fillet is actually cut from the lower part of the cow’s back. The area which sits beneath the ribs next to the backbone and forms part of the sirloin. Because this area of the animal doesn’t do much work, beef fillets are often very tender.

Is Beef Fillet the Same as Fillet Steak?

A beef fillet is the whole joint, whereas the fillet steaks are the whole joint cut into thick slices. You should note that fillet steaks are cut much thicker than popular sirloin or picanha steaks, as they are usually around 4cm thick.

How Should You Prepare Beef Fillet?

Although our expert butchers offer high-quality cuts, you may want to do these next steps at home: Start by wiping away any moisture or blood with a clean tea towel. Next, use a sharp knife to carefully remove any membrane on the joint. Finally, chop your beef fillet into steaks or leave it whole for an impressive roasting joint.


How Should Beef Fillet Be Cooked?

Start by cutting off any silver skin on your joint, and marinating your fillet with a butter, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper mixture overnight. In a hot pan, seal the edges of your fillet until a beautiful golden crust forms by basting your joint with juices. Add your fillet joint to a large tray with carrots and parsnips before slow roasting in the oven.

For How Long Do You Cook a Fillet of Beef?

Can Fillet Steak Be Cooked in the Oven?

Heat your pan to a high temperature, whilst waiting for the pan to heat, season your room temperature meat with salt and pepper to taste. Place the steak fillet in the pan and leave it alone to cook.

How Much Beef Fillet Do You Need To Feed Six Adults?

Is Fillet Steak Better Than Sirloin?

It’s really down to personal preference! Fillet steak is usually extremely tender as it’s cut from the opposite side of the ribs to the sirloin, meaning the muscle is not used as much. On the other hand, sirloin is cut from the loin and is excellently marbled, making it tender and juicy. Explore our range of classic sirloin steaks here, all available for delivery within the UK.
