New Zealand Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Short Rib Slices (300g)

Horizon Farms
BF159

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 ribeye and striploin steaks have both 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.

You get 300g (10.5oz) of finely trimmed boneless short rib slices. The short ib slices are very popular in Japan and can be found on high-end Yakiniku menus under "Sankaku Bara" or "Jo Karubi" - the short rib sits right under the rib eye and is extremely well-marbled and rich in flavor. These slices are quite largely cut and can be minute mini steaks as well. You can either enjoy them Yakiniku style, as a healthy steak salad or as steak bowls. We recommend cooking these slices to medium rare for optimal tenderness, juiciness, and flavor. Simply sprinkle with high-quality sea salt.

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.

It’s a regular item in my freezer

Translated from Japanese: I buy it every month. It's always available in the freezer, so it's convenient even when you can't go shopping.
It’s a 2 piece pack, so it’s easy to use. If you cook them all together, you can prepare them quickly even on a busy morning, which will save you time.

I cooked it in a frying pan

Translated from Japanese: I hesitated several times, but I finally gave it a try.
After thawing the meat in the refrigerator, I sprinkled it with salt and cooked it in a frying pan with olive oil.
After the skin turned brown, I turned it over and to cook the other side and finally steamed it over low heat for 10 minutes.
The moment I cut it with a knife, put it in my mouth and chewed it, I realized the difference.
It was firm and chewy, not dry and had the original taste of chicken.
Chicken tastes exactly like this.
I'm exercising a lot, so I think it's very filling.
I usually changed my eating habits mainly to vegetarian diet, but sometimes I want to eat meat.
In that case, I’d like to have meat that is safe and makes you feel like you cherish life.
Thank you for the good meat ✨

Translated from Japanese: The texture is fine and delicious. I wanted to check the taste of the meat, so I dared to use only algae salt and cooked it crispy, but when the quality is good, that alone is sufficient for a delicious treat.

Safe and delicious

Translated from Japanese: I use simple seasoning and I cook it in various ways such as simmering with vegetables and stir-frying. I’m glad that I can enjoy it with no worries.

Translated from Japanese: I’ve been ordering it many times. Any dish with it is delicious. Even if fried, it’s soft and recently I’ve been eating it as yakitori. It's too delicious. Chicken thighs can be troublesome to process, but this chicken doesn’t need any preparation and you can cut it to the size you want to eat or cook it as it is, so it's not only delicious, but it's also convenient.

Y

Translated from Japanese: I have purchased it many times. It's really delicious. It’s a type of chicken that does not smell like chicken and is elegant. I don't really like fried chicken or cooked chicken the next day because it smells, but this chicken thigh is good to eat the next day. The taste of the meat itself is very delicious.

Translated from Japanese: I deliciously steamed it with salt, pepper and white wine while it was frozen. I had a good meal.
The sizes of the fillets are quite different, so I reduced my review by one star.

Scale check is required

Translated from Japanese: The taste is solid. It seems to be easy to dry and it seems that it’s suitable for cooking such as steaming, frying or sautéing with butter to trap the water. It's also nice to have a sense of security that something with such high safety is frozen and therefore always available.
The processing content said that it had a peeling process, so when I put it in a shabu-shabu pot as it was, it became covered with scales ^^; Doesn't the fact that the scales are attached mean that they have not been processed at all?

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: I had it sautéed and in a stew.
I was worried that there would be fish scales.
It tastes better than the same deep-sea fish cod (from the supermarket).

Sometimes I can feel a slight fishy smell, so I’d like to try other cooking methods.

Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: It's my first time trying it.
It was very delicious when seasoned with organic butter and soy sauce! I will buy it again.

Y

Translated from Japanese: It’s a very elegant white fish with no odor and a soft texture. It doesn’t shrink even when boiled, sautéed or fried and it looks elegant after cooking, so I use it as the main dish for guests. It’s a fish that will impress your guests.
Since it’s a deep-sea fish that is related to cod, the taste is very similar to cod and it’s slightly pale and has a mild flavor, so I recommend using seasonings such as butter, herbs and spices to add accents.

So big it surprised me

Translated from Japanese: The legs are very big and fine. They’re filling.
Because it’s chicken raised by Bostock Brothers, it’s very delicious just like the other kinds!
In terms of size, it seems that there will be a lot of turns for celebrations.
I thought it was necessary to carefully check the inside while cooking because they’re so big.
Thank you to Horizon Farms and Bostock Brothers.

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!
