this was the worst bit of fillet steak ever full of grizzle .
This was the toughest piece of steak I have ever attempted to eat . I'll stick to ribeye from now on.
As good as the local butchers & half the price!
My husband is very fussy about getting a lean tender fillet steak so after reading some of the negative reviews I was a bit concerned. I needn't have worried, he said it was lovely and on par with the M&S fillet steak and local butchers both cost twice the price. I will buy for him again. I think if you look at it in the shop carefully, you will be able to tell how fatty it is.
Make sure it is filletsteak

TENDER & DELICIOUS
This steak was beautiful! I bought it to cook for our wedding anniversary as we are in lockdown and won't visit a restaurant. I removed the steaks from the fridge an hour before cooking to bring them well up to room temperature - turning them half way through. Using a VERY hot, dry pan I lightly oiled and seasoned the steaks before searing each side for 1 minute. On medium heat, I cooked them for 5 minutes each side basting with a small amount of butter before resting them for a further 5 minutes. The steaks melted in the mouth and were full of flavour. I refrained from using garlic as I wanted the flavour of the steaks to speak for themselves - and they did - perfectly. Served with a jacket potato, sugar snap peas, fine green beans, grilled Tesco Finest piccolo tomatoes, and small corn cobs, the steaks made a wonderful celebratory meal. A bottle of quality red wine helped!
Cooked properly, this is first class meat.
This review is based on twice weekly purchases for about the last 5 years. If cooked properly, this is first class meat. Those who complain about grissle (that I've never found) should have a good look at it before you buy, and the other poor reviews are probably not cooking it properly.
WOODEN STAKE This steak has to rank as the worst
WOODEN STAKE This steak has to rank as the worst piece of steak I'v ever even ATTEMPTED to eat. Avoid at all costs! Just not worth a cent.
Not the standard of previous purchase.
Not the standard of previous purchase. Did not cut like a fillet, gristle that shouldn't be in a fillet, most disappointing.
Dont hesitate give it a try.Made a lovely meal.
Thank goodness I decided to give this steak a whirl. Did not let me down. Best Ive had in a long long time.Lovely and lean, juicy,absolutely no fat or gristle, I ate every bit .I pan fried mine but like it well done. So brushed with a little extra virgin oil,dash of salt and pepper and followed the instructions but cooked for 10mins either side. So soft. Just ordered another 4 slices for family and I.Fingers crossed.
It was perfect
The steak was absolutely fantastic. I ate every single bit of it. My secret - is cooking it in the oven at 180C, for 8minutes one side and 6minutes on the other side (I like it medium). Don't forget to oil it up. I personally don't season it, I use black peppercorn and salt afterwards. If you salt it before cooking, it will loose its juiciness!!! Enjoy.
