32 Days Dry-Aged Aberdeen Angus Fillet Barrel Steak
Region: Holme Valley, West Yorkshire, UK
Shelf Life: Min. 6 Days
Matured in our Master Butcher’s reserve, this fillet barrel steak boasts the characteristic tender and lean meat which makes the fillet so popular in British and European cuisine. When matured for a longer period, the Fillet meat naturally dehydrates, leaving tenderised meat with concentrated beefy flavour.
Unparalleled in reputation, the Aberdeen Angus is Britain’s favourite breed, but is equally revered in the steak cutting traditions of Argentina, the United States, and South Africa. Its popularity is a direct consequence of the marbling that evenly runs through the meat to give the beef its renowned rich and indulgent flavour. Due to its quality and popularity, we hang prime Angus beef the year round, always sourced from grass fed, free range herds.
Tasting Notes: Rich, Creamy, Indulgent

Ideal as a smaller romantic sharing steak, this is a luxury steak of prime grass fed beef, with depth of flavour and delicious succulence for the top table. This beef Fillet Barrel Steak is also well regarded as a perfect steak for sharing served with a classic potato gratin & a rich red wine sauce
