Chateaubriand Roast 2 to 2 1/2 lb AVG WEIGHT
This is the most tender, high end cut of beef you can buy, at a very good price and cut and strung expertly by the good people at Iavarone Bros., which may soon be the last of its breed. Their name has always been synonymous with quality but now more than ever they mean the world to me. With everyone going out of business and sellers cutting corners we can always count on Iavarone to uphold the highest standards of quality, cleanliness and service. The incredible folks at the Maspeth location are always helpful, kind, and warm hearted. Thank you for bringing the roasts right to my door.
For those of you buying this cut, I cooked 2 of them together and both were about 2 pounds. I browned them first after sprinkling them with cracked pepper and Maldon sea salt flakes then high heat flash browned them in butter and fresh garlic on all sides then roasted for 50 minutes at 375 and they were PERFECT. Ends were medium well while most of the roast was light pink. I made a beef demi Glace on the side, sort of like an au jus but so much better, and my family was super impressed.
I love you, Iavarone. Thank you!
