The leanest of steak cuts. Why is that? The fillet is a muscle which is hardly used by the animal and so it is very tender. It has very little fat running through it and tends to be a thicker piece of meat. It is typically expensive as you only get about 2kg of fillet steak per animal and for some, it is the only steak they will eat. I can see why!
Approx. 200g per steak.
This grilled fillet steak with creamy white beans and leek recipe from Jamie Oliver makes for a fantastic main. Just brilliant.
