Food & Drink WHY AUSTRALIAN BLACK ANGUS BEEF
Prior to European settlers arriving in Australia, there was no cattle. Aberdeen Angus cattle was first introduced to the area in 1820, specifically Tasmania. As a result of the unparalleled lush grasslands in this part of the world, which is also has ‘disease free’ status and is one of the healthiest breeding environments in the world, the quality of the beef is exceptional.
Today, Herefords are reared in this part of the world as well as the Australian Black Angus.
This feeding regime results in highly consistent marbled beef which is easy on the eye and has a tenderness, flavour and juiciness so superior to other beef on the market. A real treat for the steak aficionado!
Food & Drink WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AGEING BEEF?
Ageing the beef allows natural enzymes to break down the muscle tissue, increase the tenderness and intensify the flavour.
All our beef is minimum 28 days aged and in some cases as appropriate to maximize the eating qualities and flavour, up to 40 days aged.
