A guide to your cut

The fillet is the least used muscle and therefore the most tender cut of beef. It appears lean with a very light marbling of fat and subtle flavour.
Sometimes referred to as a striploin, is the central part of the back. This cut can be roasted whole or cut into steaks. It is not quite as tender as the fillet with a rich flavour from the light marbling and a strip of fat around one edge. Always a popular choice.
The rump is a juicy cut with lots of flavour. And a rump roast is always popular. A cheaper cut but none the less flavoursome.
Ribeye steaks have a ribbon of fat that runs through the centre and this generous marbling gives this steak a core of flavour. The central ribbon melts away during cooking to leave a fulsome beefy flavour. The ribeye is often known as the butcher’s choice for that very reason!
