Cooking Instructions

Chateaubriand. A great choice for making your own beef wellington or for a decadent sharing roast.

Take your meat out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking - the bigger the cut the more time it needs to come to room temperature. Remember, meat is a muscle and needs to relax before it is cooked.

Make sure you season just before you put the steak into the pan, otherwise you will start to draw out moisture, creating a wet surface and making it harder to get a decent crust. After searing in a pan, a larger joint will benefit from being finished off in the oven - 12 minutes per 500g at 170°C.

If you want to be absolutely sure about how ‘done’ your steak is, insert a meat thermometer into the centre of the steak: it should read approximately 52°C for rare, 55°C for medium rare and 58°C for medium.

Storage Advice

Although we prefer meat wrapped in butcher's paper, we decided to vacuum pack our nationwide deliveries in order to help prolong shelf life and reduce leakages in transit. Refrigerate as soon as your order arrives. Please see the labels for use by dates.
