Fillet steak is one of the most popular, yet expensive cuts of beef due to its rarity and that it has the most flavour. Fillet is also the most tender cut as that’s a muscle that gets a lot of exercise. Everybody has their favourite fillet recipe but our roasted fillet Hawaiian might become the new go-to. The pineapple adds a layer of sweetness without overpowering the tender cut of beef.

Fillet Hawaiian tips

When you cut the medallions of beef, make sure to cut against the grain and don’t make them too thin either. You want your beef to roast without overocoking. A béarnaise sauce is a classic French sauce made with eggs and butter, so you know this is going to be good. However, ours is simpler than the classic sauce. The pineapple citrus also helps tenderise the meat even more and adds a bit of sweetness to cut through the rich sauce.
