This whole block of culotte (also known as rump cap or picanha) roast weighs at least 850g (1.8lbs.) and is the ideal cut for juicy and meaty roasts with plenty of flavors. Not as tender as the striploin but as flavorful for an economical price. This roast comes with the top fat still on (see images). We recommend leaving the fat on if you are finishing this roast on the grill as the fat will render and make the roast even more flavorful and juicy. Sear fat-down first. If you are roasting it in the oven, you can remove the fat on top as seen in the image, and slowly cook the roast to perfection inside the oven. If you are a fan of rump steaks (also known as sirloin steaks) you can cut this roast into smaller steaks of course. In that case, it is best to trim the top fat as well. Also the ideal cut for Brazilian Churrasco. See the cooking instructions below.

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.
Defrost in the fridge for at least 24h. Make sure the center is also soft and completely defrosted. Pat dry with a paper towel and remove excess moisture.
If you're planning on roasting it on the grill we recommend leaving the fat on as it will render and make the roast even more flavorful and juicy. It also protects the roast from overcooking. If you're planning on roasting it in the oven or as smaller steaks in the fry-pan or skillet - we recommend removing the so-called fat cap.
Rub the roast with plenty of olive oil and your favorite seasoning. Let the seasoning soak in for a couple of minutes. In the meanwhile prepare the fry-pan or skillet.
Set the cast iron skillet or fry-pan to low/medium and cook the roast very slowly on all sides. Make sure you keep turning the roast multiple times. If you have a splatter-screen, use it. We do not recommend covering the fry-pan with a lid.
The thicker parts of the roasts might cook slower, so make sure you pay attention to these parts. Make the roast standing by utilizing your kitchen tongs.
We recommend medium rare for the best taste experience. Use a thermometer and make sure the core temperature of the thick part has reached 50 degrees Celsius or 125 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the roast from the heat source and let it continue to cook on residual heat for another 10 minutes at room temperature placed on a cutting board.
Use a sharp large knife to slice the roast into thin slices. Pink and juicy in the center - the perfect doneness.
Serve with a home-made salad. Keep it simple and enjoy high-quality beef with the whole family.
Serve and eat while warm for the best taste experience. Enjoy.
Translated from Japanese: These are chicken frames that have been processed very beautifully.
The quality is safe and there is no odor even if you simmer it according to the reviews of other people.
I will order it again!
Translated from Japanese: I’ve reordered this many times
Recently, I’ve been boiling the two chicken frames, divide the finished product into bottles, freeze it, put it in the refrigerator the day before and drink it in the morning or use it for cooking that day.
I made a delicious bone broth soup.
Translated from Japanese: A delicious bone broth soup was made with beautiful bones. Both my mother and I have improved our gut health.
Translated from Japanese: I made bone broth soup for the first time, but it was delicious with almost no red color!
Translated from Japanese: I received very cleanly processed chicken that has no odor. I made bone broth using these.
I enjoyed the soup simply seasoned with salt and pepper. For the new year, I had it with soba, ozoni, ramen, and curry. Thank you for the good products!!
Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.
Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.
I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.
I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.
I tried a whole chicken for the first time.
Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.
Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (｡◕ˇДˇ◕｡)/
Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.
Used for Samgyetang
Translated from Japanese: I ordered it to make Samgyetang and because it’s a whole chicken, I put ginseng inside it.
I made a full soup like that, ate the meat at home and took the soup to work with me so I could drink it there. The body heats up from it.
Because I’m used to it, I break the chicken into adequate pieces for myself, use the frames for soup, freeze whatever is left and cook what I need.
Eating just one wing is economical.
Translated from Japanese: I used it for stewed dishes.
It was very delicious.
Grass-fed lamb shanks
Translated from Japanese: Great lamb shank!
When you open the pack, the meat is clean and has no odor. Just boil it with flavored vegetables such as tomatoes and onion bay leaves for two and a half hours ... A faint lamb scent, plenty of flavor, and meat is fluffy ... It has become a luxurious pot-au-feu.
Grass-fed lamb shanks
Translated from Japanese: I didn't know that New Zealand pesticide-free grass fed, antibiotics, and hormone-free lamb meat would be available at such a reasonable price.
It was packed properly in a well-frozen state and arrived the day after the order was placed.
When simmered in an ordinary pot with only vegetables and natural salt for 2 hours, the meat became surprisingly tender, and the bone marrow melted in the soup, giving it a strong flavor. Surprisingly, it has no odor.
When I lived in New Zealand, I saw many grazing sheep. It was impressive that I walked around the lush meadows freely and was grazing.
Translated from Japanese: The most delicious stewed meat. It's lamb and the meat itself has a light taste, but it's the best if you season it well. This time, I made pot-au-feu, put in salt and granule kelp soup stock, a tea bag of bouquet garni, a small amount of light soy sauce, and a small amount of pure rice liquor, and boiled green pepper. It seems that tomato sauce and white sauce can be used, too (reinforcement of the delicious "flavor" is essential). The fascia part is sticky and slippery, and the tendon part is fine and chewy and delicious. It's finer than the shin meat of adult beef, and it's only cheek meat that is comparable to this. Delicious.
The recommended stew time is about 1.5-2.5 hours.
The cost performance is good
Translated from Japanese: The meat part was delicious. I put all 3 packs together and made a marrow soup. I boiled it for about 5 minutes. I think this is a product that is delicious and has excellent cost performance.
Translated from Japanese: I got this safe and organic product to make delicious bone broth for babies in the late stages of baby food!
I made a very delicious soup and my baby ate it well.
I made bone broth
Translated from Japanese: It was easy to cook even for the first time, and I made a very rich and delicious soup. I boiled it for half a day, so it was easy to remove the meat from the bones and easy to eat. I want to buy it again.
Translated from Japanese: I think that there’s no better product for tail soup and bone broth. I think I will continue to buy it here.
Translated from Japanese: I bought it because I wanted to make tail stew. It's a pity that the edible part is less than half considering the number of grams because the bone occupies a considerable part.
The price is high for the quantity.
Translated from Japanese: I made tail soup. It was light, rich and delicious. My children also liked it and drank it. I want to order again.
