Scotch Fillet steak is considered one of the best steaks on the market. The scotch fillet is cut from the roast known as a prime rib or standing rib roast that sits at the top of the rib primal, the part of the cow between the chuck and the loin. The scotch fillet is basically the meat between each of the ribs, which makes it a boneless cut; it is best grilled or broiled.
This highly desired cut of meat deserves top billing due to its full flavor and soft texture. The generous amount of marbling (fat running through the meat) makes for a rich taste and juicy finish. Because this area of the cow gets little exercise, the muscle isn’t used much and therefore the meat is nice and tender. Scotch fillet is often a decent size, filling up the plate, making for an impressive steak dinner.
