Nutritional values

Beautifully tender, beautifully low in fat and rich in important nutrients: Fillet of beef provides a good portion of zinc for full immune power and high-quality iron for blood formation.

What lasts a long time, finally becomes good: The fine filet sour roast needs some time, but then melts on the tongue. If you want to stand in the kitchen for a little less time, you can take veal stock out of the jar instead of cooking it yourself.
