Delicious steak

Translated from Japanese: Soft and delicious. I cut it into two halves and cooked it like a steak with salt and pepper and garlic, then I added onions as well. Even if you cook it in thick slices, it doesn’t become dry, so it’s easy to cook. More than rare, I found it softer at medium rare.

New Zealand Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Striploin Roast (1kg)

Horizon Farms
BF162

Description

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.

You get a 1kg (2.2lbs) block cut right from the striploin primal. Closely trimmed and steak-ready with a juicy fat cap on. This striploin block is perfectly made for steaks. The most popular steak cut is the New York Strip Steak. We recommend seasoning the 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. That means you need to take the steak off the heat once the core temperature has reached 53 degrees Celsius (170 degrees Fahrenheit) and let it rest for about 5 minutes (10 minutes for a roast) as the meat continues cooking on the inside. Check out our cooking instructions at the bottom.

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.

Beef Striploin Roast Recipe Instructions

 New Zealand Striploin Steak

Defrost the package in the fridge for at least 24h - depending on your fridge it may take up to 48h to defrost 1kg of meat. Once defrosted open the pack and let the meat "breathe" for at least 15 min. at room temperature. You will see its color changing and becoming more vivid as it is exposed to oxygen. 

New Zealand Striploin Steak

Because the block comes steak ready there is no need to trim off any fat. The fat cap provides juiciness and flavor for the steaks we do not recommend trimming this part off. The striploin block can be cut into three thick steaks.

New Zealand Striploin Steak

Great quality beef does not require heavy seasoning and marinades. Please use only sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

New Zealand Striploin Steak

We recommend the cast-iron skillet. Use non-salted butter and a few fresh thyme leaves. Heat up the fry-pan to hot. Let the fry-pan get very hot first before you place the steaks fat-side down. We want to bring out all the flavor and juices from that part. Make sure the steaks don't fall over.

New Zealand Striploin Steak

After a few minutes reduce the heat to low/medium and continue cooking. The magic formula is to cook low/medium and to keep turning the steaks often. If your steaks are thick enough you need to make them stand and cook the other sides as well. 

New Zealand Striploin Steak

Use a meat thermometer and make sure not to cook over medium-rare (55 degrees Celsius) - measure the core temperature and take the steaks off the heat once the temperature reaches 52 degrees Celsius (125 degrees Fahrenheit). 

New Zealand Striploin Steak

Place the steaks on a cutting board and let the steaks rest for at least 5 minutes as the meat continues to cook internally. 

New Zealand Striploin Steaks

Perfectly done medium-rare steak. Slice and serve. 

New Zealand Striploin Steak

Sprinkle with sea salt flakes to your liking. Enjoy while warm and buttery soft for the best experience.

Also for pets

Translated from Japanese: The bone broth made from this chicken is also very delicious, but I am very pleased that I can scrape off the meat after taking the soup stock and give it to my pet cat. It’s a product that everyone, both pets and families, will appreciate.

Very satisfied!!!!!

Translated from Japanese: I made bone broth soup. It was delicious without any odor. It's non-genetically modified meat, so I'm happy to eat it with confidence. It seems that you will not be able to eat anything other than this meat (laughs)
I will continue to purchase it.

Translated from Japanese: I received very cleanly processed chicken frames with no odor. I used them to make bone broth.
We enjoyed the soup simply seasoned with salt and pepper, toshikoshi soba, New Year's ozoni, ramen and curry. Thank you for the good products!!!

Translated from Japanese: As you can see in other reviews, these are very beautifully processed chicken frames. I boiled them in a pot without adding any spices to eliminate the odor, but there was no odor during cooking. A clean and clear soup was made.
I want to order it again!

For bone broth soup

Translated from Japanese: It was a volume that I couldn't think of as 1.5 kg! I came here looking for meat that I could eat with no worries. I’d like it if you also offered different types of chicken wings.

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

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.

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.

Highest quality

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.

J
J.

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 haven’t been able to eat in a restaurant because of corona, so I wanted to have something that is just as delicious, even if made at home. My family likes lamb, so I searched for lamb shanks. It was my first time buying here, but I was very satisfied. It was my first time seeing raw lamb shank, but it was very beautiful and my impression after eating was that it’s tender and delicious with no odor. For those who want to give this a try, if you have a pressure cooker, wine and rosemary, it will be delicious. I recommend it. Next weekend, I gave the recipe on the website a try and my family loved it.

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.
