Marbling in steak refers to the flecks of intramuscular fat that are distributed throughout the meat. This fat contributes to the flavor, juiciness, and tenderness of the steak, as it melts and infuses the meat with its rich, buttery flavor during cooking. The more marbling a steak has, the more flavorful and tender it will be.

How to cook: Always allow the beef to come to room temperature before cooking. Season & oil the whole fillet well, sear on a high heat and then roast in a 190 °C oven. This cut is best served medium (35 minutes) to medium rare (30 minutes). The internal meat temperature should be between 60°C and 65°C. Rest the eye fillet for 10-15 minutes before serving. Delicious with potatoes (any style), red wine jus and a fresh green salad!
