A luxurious cut – supremely tender and tasty fillets
A really outstanding cut unmatched on the beef carcass for melting tenderness, smooth grain and refined flavour. For a really special occasion, you need look no further than organic fillet of beef from Coombe Farm Organic. The beef fillet is probably best known for producing top-quality, high-end steaks, but cooked as a whole it's another experience. Fancy making Carpaccio? Take a look here.
Fillet of beef is otherwise known as tenderloin, a name which is pretty self-explanatory. It's a loin muscle, found beside the sirloin, and it's exceptionally tender. It has no superficial fat and negligible marbling so needs careful cooking to preserve it's delicate flavour. The long, tapering fillet is made up of three distinct parts – the butt, the centre cut and the tail – and is a versatile piece of meat that lends itself to lots of different treatments. Because it's a slightly awkward shape, it's often split into three parts for ease of use. The butt is the widest part of the cut and is perfect for carpacchio, the centre cut (including the chateaubriand) is even in shape and density so ideal for beef wellington, while the pointed tail can be cut into steaks or roasted as a mini joint.

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.

If you want a really magnificent centrepiece, a whole roast fillet is unbeatable. To cook it evenly can be tricky, though, so if you're planning to keep the tail on it's best to fold it under and secure it in place to prevent it cooking way more quickly than the rest of the joint. Sear in a very hot pan until all sides are browned, then roast for about 15 minutes. When the internal temperature is 50˚C the inside will be rare. Rest for 15 minutes wrapped in foil then slice thinly and serve with a punchy peppercorn sauce.

Worried at first as such an odd long thin shape. I am a non meat eater, however, when the joint was trussed and cooked it was acclaimed as superb! Worried at first as such an odd long thin shape. I am a non meat eater, however, when the joint was trussed and cooked it was acclaimed as superb!
