Buttery soft steaks full of succulent flavour - we love these fillets
Quite rightly, the fillet is considered the prize on the beef carcass. It sits nestled below the sirloin and above the flank on the animal's side and really isn't a hard worker. This means that if you want the softest, most tender cut of beef, fillet is the way to go. It's otherwise known as the tenderloin, which pretty much sums it up. The fillet is a long muscle that tapers off towards the end. Prime fillet steak is cut from the centre of the muscle; chateaubriand comes from the thicker 'cap' end, which leaves the tapering 'tail'. The flavour, texture and quality of the tail is every bit as good as the rest of the cut, it's just a slightly inconsistent shape. That's why we leave it as a generously portioned piece, so you can decide if you want to cook it as one or portion it for two.
At Coombe Farm Organic we put a lot of time and effort, plus a lot of care and attention, into rearing our beef cattle. A natural diet of organic grass means the calves grow strong and healthy, with robust bones and substantial muscles. We believe that nature knows what she's up to, so we don't hurry things along. We let our beef animals grow slowly to natural maturity, and that ensure the meat they produce is tender, flavoursome and has the perfect balance of fat to muscle.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Your organic fillet tail comes as portion of approximately 350g. That's a generous portion for one (go ahead, we're not judging) or a sharing portion for two. As with all cuts of fillet, cooking it quick and hot is the best way to preserve the succulence and tender texture. So be brave and cook your fillet tail on a smoking hot griddle for just over a minute per side, before letting it rest, wrapped in foil, for five or ten minutes more. You'll be rewarded with a juicy, butter-soft interior and a crisp outside. Fillet tail is also an excellent choice of cut for dishes such as beef stroganoff, which are cooked quickly, so call for a really tender strips of meat.
