If you are wondering what a Chateaubriand is, it is the prize cut of the fillet of beef, which offers delectable dining for an intimate evening, as it is perfect as a sharing steak. You won't usually find this in the supermarket as it needs a master butcher to trim the fillet head so that you're left with just deliciously soft and tender meat.
Named after the writer, statesman and, precursor of the romantic movement in France, chateaubriand is considered the most intimate of steaks to share with a loved one. It is essentially a small roast-for-two cut from the centre of the beef fillet it is much easier to cook than people realise, which works great with a variety of steak sauces.
Best enjoyed medium rare, with a special someone and your favourite steak sauce.
