Pre-ordered Chilled Stockyard Grain-Fed Angus Tenderloin (Australia) 220g by Makati Shangri-La
Fine-Grained, Lean, Tenderness
Tenderloin from Stockyard’s Long Fed Gold Angus cows makes for one of the tenderest Australian steaks around. Your order comes with a side of mushrooms, mashed potatoes, and a sauce of your choice. Only available for Saturday deliveries.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Cut from the short loin of the cow, a non-weightbearing part of the animal, tenderloin (also called filet in France and fillet in England) is very lean and tender. The meat is lean, usually trimmed of all fat and connective tissue, rendering it perfect for different cooking methods.
Stockyard’s steaks come from beef that has been fed a special grain diet for at least 200 days before processing. Consuming locally sourced wheat, barley, and sorghum imparts the flavors of the land into the steaks — without any growth enhancers or GMOs thrown into the mix.
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
Your tenderloin steak arrives chilled, never frozen. It’s ready for a quick pan-sear or even a good grilling — best served rare or medium-rare. This steak is delightful with a good crust on the surface and you hardly ever need more than a little seasoning. Please see the cooking instructions card that comes with your order. For your sauce, you can choose from green peppercorn sauce, mushroom sauce, blue cheese sauce, or natural beef jus.
Wine with softer tannins work best here, so pour yourself a glass from Bordeaux or a classic Californian Cabernet Sauvignon. For something a little different, try an Argentinian Malbec.
A STEAK OF MANY CUTS
The tenderloin actually comes in three main cuts: the rump area, the center-cut, and the tail. The rump area yields large, thin cuts, and is suitable for carpaccio. The center-cut is the most consistent in size, and this is where the choicest tenderloin steaks come from. Three or four cuts from this area are considered filet mignon. A double or triple filet mignon is what we call the chateaubriand and the narrower end of the tenderloin center-cut yields the small but thick tournados. And the tail? Due to its inconsistent sizing, this is where the small, tender cuts for stews like Beef Stroganoff come from.
