You get one trimmed striploin steak 300g (10.5oz) cut right from the striploin primal. Closely trimmed into New York-style steaks. Striploin steaks, along with the all-time favorites ribeye and filet steaks are the most popular cuts of steak. If you are looking for tenderness, go for the ribeye and tenderloin steaks. If you're looking for a meaty and flavorful taste experience with less fat, always choose the striploin steaks. We recommend seasoning these steaks with simple sea salt and freshly ground pepper only. Cook on low/medium heat and keep turning. Cook to medium-rare for the best taste experience.

Introducing another premium brand to our family. Ocean Beef from New Zealand. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the islands of New Zealand are famed for their world-leading farmers. This is one of the finest New Zealand Angus beef quality available. Combine the freshest New Zealand grass, the best New Zealand grains, and the best New Zealand sea air - and you get Ocean Beef. But that's not it. At Horizon Farms, we aim for the best: Free-range grass-fed for 18 months on lush green and fresh pastures of New Zealand. Then for 200 days the cows are grain-fed the finest selection of New Zealand-grown (supplied by local farmers only) GMO-free grains and drink sustainable water made by the snow from the Southern Alps in a stress-free coastal environment. At no point are the cows given growth hormones or treated with subtherapeutic antibiotics. See more about the farms below. The Ocean Beef striploin steak has won the Gold medal at the World Steak Challenge with the following judging criteria: appearance, aroma, color, marbling, consistency of fat trim, tenderness, flavor, succulence.
Compared to our Morgan Ranch Beef, New Zealand Ocean Beef ranks lower due to the breed (Angus vs. Black Angus + Japanese Wagyu) which genetically yields lesser marbling and is, therefore, less intensive in taste and tenderness. However, price point, quality, and taste experience-wise the New Zealand beef is the next-best alternative. Generally speaking, grass-fed and grain-finished beef is of higher quality and provides a better taste experience and provides a great balance between red-meat ratio and healthy omega 3s unsaturated fats.

Our New Zealand beef comes from the Canterbury area of the southern island of New Zealand. The cows are raised on local ranches (referred to as cattle stations in New Zealand) which are family-owned and run. The animals are grass-fed on open pastures their entire lives. Then, 200 days before harvesting, the cows are fed a mix of vegetarian feed consisting of all-locally sourced GMO-free natural grains, silage, hay, molasses, oilseed meals and legumes for a consistent beef flavor and texture. At no point are the animals confined in tight spaces or are force-fed. The finishing feedlots are very spacious and animals are absolutely free to roam on over 6000 square meters. At no point are growth-hormones or antibiotics used.

Export and Processing
Chilled export from New Zealand to Japan. Processed into retail sizes in Japan and then flash frozen.
Completely defrost in the fridge or in cold water. Open pack and pat dry any moisture with a paper towel. Let the steaks sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. You will see vivid color changes as the steaks are exposed to oxygen.
Quality steaks do not require heavy seasonings or marinate. Simply use sea salt and freshly ground pepper and rub with extra virgin olive oil.
Use a fry-pan or cast-iron skillet. Preheat to low/medium. You need to hear the steak sizzle. If you are using a grill, place the steaks into the indirect heat zone not directly over the flames.
Cook low and slow on all sides. Make use of your kitchen tongs to make the steaks stand up on their sides. Keep turning the steaks. There is no need to sear these steaks!
Keep turning them. Use a thermometer to determine the core temperature. We recommend medium-rare for steaks. Remove from the heat once the core temperature has reached 50 degrees Celcius (125 degrees Fahrenheit) and place on a cutting board.
The steaks will continue to cook internally on residual heat. Let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes.
Use a large sharp knife and cut the striploin steaks into slices.
Perfectly cooked to medium-rare. Serve and eat while warm for the best taste experience.
