Fillet

The cut: There are two fillets per animal (one on each side), located in the lumbar region beneath the back bone, on the opposite side of the bone to the sirloin.The fillet does very little work so is very tender and also very low in fat hence it has a delicate, light flavour and will benefit from good hanging. Almost no external fat is present so marbling through the meat is essential to avoid dryness.

Alternatives: There isn’t one, really, but you could try heart of rump.

Cooking: Best suited to quick cooking but a successful roast can be obtained using the head or thick centre section. This is by far the tenderest cut on the carcass but it is also the most subtle in flavour. This tenderness makes it ideal for serving underdone or even raw in a carpaccio or steak tartare. For steaks, pan fry them in olive oil with a little butter added half way through cooking. Don’t cook them any more than medium and avoid too strong a sauce.

They are fully trimmed of all exterior fat, yet marbled enough to deliver full flavour.
