Scotch fillet is the steak used in fillet mignon (sp) - also called eye fillet or fillet or from larger cut which is a tenderloin - which is then cut into the scotch fillet.

Thanks for the clarification - I thought it was the 'eye' of the fillet!

Haggis, if I see a bottle of "Sydney Harbour fortified" I shall know it be a fine Austalian Port.

Scotch fillet is an economy cut primarily used for roasting or braising from the chuck section.....never heard of it coming from fillet.
I used a microwave once.....just once!

Scotch Fillet


According to this picture and explanation, it is not a braising cut and is also called a rib eye fillet. Fillet means thin cut.

Nosing around on google and egullet has me convinced that it is a name of a cut of beef and has nothing to do with Scotland being the origin of the beef.

At least today.

Popular in Australia.

Thumbs up The Final Word On Scotch Fillet

Here's what I was looking for:

Australian Term: Scotch Fillet

U.S.A. Term: Ribeye Fillet (Ribeye steak without bone)

Thank you Haggis and Foodaholic for distilling the answer I was looking for. Everyone else, thanks for your input!

The problem with searching an Aussie website for recipes (if you live in Texas) is that you need to translate the terms used in some cases.
