It’s delicious meat, but it’s a little disappointing.

Translated from Japanese: It was easy to purchase an additional 300g pack for 790 yen, but suddenly it became a 3-pack set and the price of the 1-pack went up. It was a very good product, so I would like to continue to purchase it, but for those who have purchased in 1-pack units, there are also explanations such as explanations about the change to 3-pack set products and price increases. I'm a little disappointed because I can't find an explanation to it.

Very easy to use

Translated from Japanese: I've bought it several times and it's delicious because it can be used for various purposes such as stir-fried foods, meat potatoes, and vegetable meat rolls. It may not be the gyudon (Japanese dish) you imagine because it’s not sliced to fit a general gyudon as others have said, but it’s very soft and it’s delicious, even if you eat it as gyudon.
It’s a product that I’d like to purchase again in the future.

Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Navel Brisket Slices New Zealand (900g)

Horizon Farms
ST153

Beef from the navel brisket, the belly part of beef is one of the most used cuts in Japan. Japanese beef bowl (Gyudon) restaurants use the navel brisket as their main ingredient. The navel brisket is the equivalent of pork belly - a cut with a very high-fat ratio and great to use for stir-fried dishes that require juicy meat that cooks fast and easy. You get 3 packs, each contains 300g (0.6lbs) of beef slices with a thickness of about 1mm (3/64″). The longer you slow-cook this cut of beef the more tender it becomes. Tip: beef bowl restaurants use a pressure cooker to cook the meat tender.

New Zealand Beef

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.

Translated from Japanese: I cooked it at low temperature with only sea salt. It was moist and tender, had no dullness and tasted like the chicken I ate a long time ago.

Good amount, good taste

Translated from Japanese: It was delicious. There is a lot of meat. It’s good to thaw slowly as specified and cooked it in a frying pan, or boiling it in water samgyetang style (Korean dish). It always becomes a very nourishing soup. I used it as it was without boiling it, but I didn't mind the lye. Maybe because the meat is good, there is no odor.

Best breast meat

Translated from Japanese: It's incredibly soft, has no smell, and is delicious! This time, I sprinkled garlic and red wine at the time of thawing, cooked it with onions and olive oil for a day, added tomatoes and broccoli and finally adjusted the taste with ketchup. It was delicious.

It was very delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I like sautéed breast meat and have been eating it for a long time, but recently I learned that there is a problem with the feed and breeding method of all livestock raised regardless of chicken, so I’m looking for safe and secure meat. And I came across this product.
I can't deny that it's more expensive than the meat in a supermarket, but I bought it because I couldn't exchange it for the safety and security of food.
As usual, when I sautéed it with only salt and pepper, I was more satisfied with the texture and flavor than any of the breast meat I had ever eaten.
I wrote in the title, "It was very delicious!", But it was a moving gem that I couldn't explain in one word.
It’s a product that I want to order again.

Safe and secure chicken

Translated from Japanese: I don't think there are many farms that are so particular about safety. You can feel the producer's commitment with the firm and delicious meat quality that is satisfying to eat. I'm going to order again.

I found good meat

Translated from Japanese: I served this for dinner to my husband, who absolutely refuses to eat chicken, but he silently ate everything cleanly. Thank you for this good food.
I will order again.

I’m surprised this is real chicken

Translated from Japanese: I started eating pesticide-free vegetables, and I was looking for safe grazing chicken and found this store here. What was the chicken I had until now? One pack contains 500gr, but it was cut into 5 pieces, so I didn't have to cut it into small pieces. First of all, I was surprised when I put the knife in. The chicken is messy when I put it in, but it’s easy to cut. Of course, the taste is delicious. I fried it in a frying pan with a lot of olive oil without any special seasoning, and it was very delicious. I ate it as it was without sauce. I’ve always liked lighter seasoning, so it was delicious without any. I was satisfied with the taste of the chicken itself.

Translated from Japanese: I used to not like chicken so I couldn’t eat some broilers, but this meat tasted good and I could eat it without any problems. I will buy it again.

Translated from Japanese: I’m ordering again.
It’s the only delicious chicken that can be eaten by families who don’t like chicken. I’m happy that it’s safe and organic.

Translated from Japanese: It's soft and juicy.
I think it's real chicken that is simply seasoned and flavorful.

Translated from Japanese: Blue hake is the fish that my kids love most when it comes to school lunches, but it's hard to get at stores, so I buy it here. This blue hake is thick and very delicious when fried.

Translated from Japanese: I used this shop for the first time.
When it actually arrived, I was surprised that it was much larger than the photo and was solid.
When cooking, I just cooked it as it was and did not season it.
I was very satisfied with the plump fish and its own saltiness.
The packaging was also polite and they delivered quickly. I would like to continue ordering here.

I’m impressed!

Translated from Japanese: I think it’s my first time eating free-range chicken. The shape was firm and it felt really filling. This amount of deliciousness surprised me! I’m shocked. I might not be able to have chicken from the supermarket anymore. I’m really thankful that you’re providing organic meat at an affordable price.

-

Translated from Japanese: I have been very curious about this one, so I’m ordering it together with the chicken liver which I had before. Our oven is not in a good condition, so I boiled it like samgyetang (a dish)! The part it was cut from is different (from what is used for samgyetang), but without fail I could make a delicious soup. The meat itself had no bad smell, was soft and really delicious.

The flavor of chicken is wow!!!

Translated from Japanese: I added simple flavors like onion, salt and pepper and baked it in the oven until turned brown. My husband also said “How is this meat so delicious!” in shock while eating. This meat’s level is so high it made us not want to eat it from anywhere else. Next time, I want to try a different kind of seasoning, so I will order again!

Amazingly delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I cooked it after simply marinating it with herbs, lemon, salt and pepper and olive oil. It was really delicious. There was no unpleasant smell at all, the skin is thin and became crispy, it also stayed in shape. It’s a big difference from chicken sold in ordinary supermarkets. I will order again!

Safe

Translated from Japanese: I think there’s no other place where you can get organic chicken like this. Above all, it was delicious, really the best.
