Sausages or Eye Fillet steak?

An information site for British Migrants to Australia, providing information since October 2005. Post Content follows this advert.

The price of food in Australia still surprises me at times.

Last night we had some nice eye fillet steak for dinner,  it cost us $15 per kg.

Today,  while eating breakfast, I was reading the supermarket weekly catalogue,  and saw sausages at $14 per kg.

I can’t help recalling that sausages were always much cheaper than what we probably called “real meat”.

But with the quality of some of these sausages,  I actually wonder which tastes better; the sausages or the eye fillet.


Australia: Eye Fillet
UK: Fillet steak
South Africa: Fillet
France: Filet
Brazil: Filet Mignon
America: Beef Tenderloin

Fillet steak a.k.a. eye fillet or tenderloin.

Famously tender, the fillet is arguably the most desirable of steaks. It’s supremely lean with a mild and subtle flavour.

A few translations for Australian Steak names.

  • Sirloin steak a.k.a. porterhouse steak or New York steak.
  • Fillet steak a.k.a. eye fillet or tenderloin.
  • Scotch fillet steak a.k.a. boneless rib eye or rib fillet.
  • Rump steak a.k.a. Rump steak (Rump is just Rump)
  • Fillet steak can be confusing, as “Fillet” can include eye fillet and rib fillet.
