Chateaubriand is a special and revered cut of prime beef. It is the centre cut of fillet, the most tender part of the animal. Portions are cut much thicker than usual filet steak at around 4inches. Ideal for roasting and serving rare to pink. Exceptional. Serves 2 people.
"One of the most prized beef cut, this French joint is cut from the centre of the fillet, an underworked muscle on the underside of the spinal column. This first class cut promises lean, exquisitely tender meat. Can sometimes be referred to as Fillet mignon."
