Eye Fillet (commonly known as Tenderloin)
A personal favourite of co-founder Amy Bell, the Eye fillet steak is cut from the loin of beef. This muscle does very little work, hence making it the most tender part of the beef. It tastes extremely tender with an almost buttery texture. Eye fillet steaks are perfect for pan-frying or BBQing – it really cut can’t go wrong either way. If you’re a huge fan of tender and lean steak, this is one cut you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
The Porterhouse steak is often considered to be the finest of all beef steaks. Cut from the rear end of the short loin of beef, the Porterhouse cut is a 2-for-1 cut with both tenderloin and a piece of strip. A good porterhouse steak has a layer of white (not yellow) fat, which can be trimmed away if preferred. They are suited for pan-frying or grilling, and are perfect for those nights you feel like you deserve a good treat after a long day of work.
A personal favourite of CEO Brad Ross, the Rib Eye steak is a cut from the upper rib section of the beef. This part is lightly worked, making the Rib Eye both tender and tasty. It is also often served in restaurants due to its tenderness and marbling. Since marbled fat is where a lot of the distinctive flavor of beef comes from, the Rib eye one of the richest, beefiest cuts available.
