Veal Tenderloin Roast (Butt Tender)
Cut from the thick end - or head - of the tenderloin, this roast is sometimes called chateaubriand, which refers both to the cut and the classic French preparation. With fine texture and lean, succulent meat that is easy to carve, this veal roast can be pan-seared and finished in the oven. Simple techniques will bring out the best in this imported milk-fed veal which is arguably the most humanely raised and best-tasting veal available - exclusively at D'Artagnan.

We work with a cooperative of small-scale veal farms in Southwest France that raise Charolais and Limousin breeds, well-known as beef cattle. The veal calves are not simply a by-product of the dairy industry but are raised for their quality meat. To support their development and natural immunities, they get mother’s milk for two weeks before being weaned onto a milk-based diet.
The calves live in group housing, in open spaces with clean straw bedding, free to socialize with other calves in a sunlit, comfortable environment.
Arguably the most humane veal in the world, our French veal complies with the "5 Freedoms" statutes of the E.U., a guarantee that far exceeds the humane standards for veal in other countries. These are the freedom to express normal behavior; freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury, and disease; freedom from fear and distress.
