To maintain the freshness and quality of Veal Fillet, it is recommended to store it in the refrigerator at a temperature of 32°F to 40°F (0°C to 4°C). Place the fillet in its original packaging or transfer it to an airtight container or resealable plastic bag to prevent any cross-contamination or exposure to odors. Properly stored, the Veal Fillet can be refrigerated for up to 2-3 days. If you wish to extend its shelf life, you can also freeze the fillet. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in a freezer-safe container or bag. Frozen Veal Fillet can maintain its quality for approximately 3-4 months. Remember to thaw frozen fillets in the refrigerator before cooking for the best results.
This pack contains 400g-1kg.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Here’s cooking instruction for Veal Fillet:

1. Preparing the Veal Fillet:
• Start by trimming any excess fat or sinew from the veal fillet.
• Season the fillet with salt and pepper, or any other desired seasonings.
2. Searing the Fillet:
• Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add a small amount of cooking oil.
• Once the pan is hot, carefully place the veal fillet in the pan.
• Sear the fillet for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it develops a golden-brown crust.
3. Cooking the Fillet:
• Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking the veal fillet for an additional 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
• Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. For medium-rare, the temperature should read around 135°F (57°C). Adjust the cooking time if you prefer a different level of doneness.
4. Resting and Serving:
• Once the veal fillet reaches the desired doneness, remove it from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes.
• Resting allows the juices to redistribute within the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful fillet.
• After resting, slice the veal fillet against the grain into thin slices.
• Serve the veal fillet with your choice of sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a salad.

Remember, cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the veal fillet and your desired level of doneness. It’s always recommended to use a meat thermometer to ensure the meat is cooked to your preference. Enjoy your meal!
