This product requires further trimming of the silverskin to guarantee a melt in your mouth experience.
Silverskin is the thin membrane of connective tissue found on various meats, including Eye Fillet or Tenderloin. Unlike other connective tissue – like collagen, which slowly dissolves during the cooking process – silverskin does not break down. When left attached to meat, it will cook up tough and chewy which is why it is essential to cut this membrane away prior to cooking.
Follow these simple tips when removing silverskin:
Always use a sharp knife when trimming meat.
Slip the tip of the knife under the silverskin, working it between the meat and the skin until you can grip a lose flap of skin (use a paper towel to get a better grip).
Continue to run the knife along the meat pulling the silverskin back gradually away from the meat.
