Characteristics

The Hereford Château fillet is a cut above the rest due to the breed’s superior marbling and tenderness. It is a lean cut with a buttery smooth texture, making it incredibly tender and melt-in-the-mouth. The flavour is subtle yet rich, allowing the natural qualities of the beef to shine through.

Cooking Tips

Given its premium nature, the Hereford Château fillet deserves careful preparation to enhance its natural qualities:

  1. Preparation: Allow the fillet to come to room temperature before cooking. This helps ensure even cooking throughout the steak.
  2. Seasoning: Use minimal seasoning—just a touch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. This allows the beef’s natural flavours to be the star of the dish.
  3. Cooking: Sear the fillet in a hot, heavy-based pan with a little oil or butter. For a medium-rare finish, cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, adjusting for your preferred level of doneness. Alternatively, you can roast it in an oven preheated to 200°C (392°F) after searing.
  4. Resting: Let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes after cooking. This helps retain its juices, ensuring a juicy and tender bite.

Serving Suggestions

The Château fillet is often served with classic accompaniments that complement its delicate flavour:

  • Sauces: A rich red wine reduction, Béarnaise sauce, or a simple herb butter can enhance the steak without overpowering it.
  • Sides: Serve with roasted vegetables, creamy mashed potatoes, or a crisp salad to balance the richness of the fillet.

Nutritional Information

Hereford beef Château fillet is not only a delight for the palate but also a nutritious choice. It is a high-quality source of protein, essential for muscle repair and growth. It also provides vital nutrients like iron, zinc, and B vitamins, particularly B12, which are important for energy production and overall health.

Perfect for Special Diets

This cut is ideal for those on high-protein diets or those looking to enjoy a luxurious meal without excessive fat. Its lean nature makes it a great choice for health-conscious diners who still want to indulge in a premium beef experience.

A little about Hereford Beef

A breed renowned for its exceptional meat quality. Originating from Herefordshire, England, in the 18th century, Hereford cattle are now raised globally, valued for their efficient feed conversion, adaptability, and docility. Hereford beef is particularly prized for its marbling, tenderness, and rich taste, characteristics that make it a preferred choice among chefs and steak enthusiasts.

Key Qualities of Hereford Beef Steaks:

  • Marbling: Hereford beef has a noticeable amount of intramuscular fat, or marbling, which melts during cooking, adding to the steak’s juiciness and flavour.
  • Tenderness: The beef is known for its soft texture, making it a pleasure to eat. Proper aging of the meat further enhances this tenderness.
  • Flavour: Hereford beef steaks have a distinct, full-bodied taste, attributed to the cattle’s diet and genetics. The beef’s rich flavour profile stands out even with minimal seasoning.

Cooking Hereford Beef Steaks:

  • Seasoning: Given its natural flavour, Hereford beef steaks require minimal seasoning — often just salt and pepper.
  • Cooking Method: Grilling or pan-searing at high temperatures is ideal for achieving a caramelised crust while keeping the interior juicy and tender.
  • Resting: Allow the steak to rest after cooking and before slicing to ensure the juices redistribute throughout the meat, enhancing its flavour and tenderness.

Ethical and Sustainable Farming:

Our North Yorkshire Hereford cattle farmers prioritise sustainable and ethical farming practices, focusing on animal welfare, pasture management, and environmentally friendly farming techniques. These practices not only contribute to the high quality of Hereford beef but also support sustainable agriculture.

Hereford beef steaks are a premium choice for those seeking exceptional quality and taste in their beef. Whether enjoyed in a fine dining establishment or cooked at home, Hereford beef offers a superior steak experience.
