Filet from Down Under


Recommended Posts

My local market runs a sale every couple of months on "Australian Whole Tenderloin". The sale price is $4 a pound, and after I trim it up and portion it, the tenderloin makes 7-10 flilets plus about a pound or two of chain meat that I can play around with.


I'd never thought about the label before. Is this fillet really coming all the way from Australia? And is that a good thing? If so, why's it so cheap? If I wanted to travel from here to Australia it'd be f'n expensive. And how can it get here unspoiled if it's not previously frozen? Or should I assume it was? It doesn't seem like it was. . . . :wacko:


Oh, and dinner's gonna be sweet tonight. Fillet with pan sauce and snow crab legs.

australian beef is known to be free range and are supposed to have soft textured muscle instead of fat. the price reduction may be a result of grade and/or how long it's been in the store.... they may be trying to move old product. you are prob (though not necessarily) getting a frozen product- which will still cook well. packaging will protect it on it's journey (just like kobe/ wagyu). it would normally be pricey.
