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 ribeye 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 800g (1.76lbs) block cut right from the rib primal. Closely trimmed and ready for cooking. You can either cut the block into 2 large and thick ribeye steaks or cook the roast as is. The ribeye is the most popular cut as it combines marbling, tenderness, and rich flavor. Compared to the striploin, the ribeye has more abundant fat and is therefore juicier. 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.

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.

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 Ribeye Roast Recipe Instructions

 New Zealand Ribeye 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.

Because the block comes steak ready there is no need to trim off any fat. You can either roast the block of meat as is or slice it into two or three thick steaks. In our presentation, we will cut the block into two one-pound steaks.

New Zealand Ribeye Steak

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

New Zealand Ribeye Steak

We recommend the cast-iron skillet. Use non-salted butter and a few fresh thyme leaves. Heat up the fry-pan to low-medium and let the fry-pan get hot first before you place the steaks inside. You want to hear it sizzling.

New Zealand Ribeye Steak

The magic formula is to cook low/medium and to keep turning often. If your steaks are thick enough you need to make them stand and cook the sides as well. 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 Ribeye 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 Ribeye Steak

Perfectly done medium-rare steak. Slice and serve. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes to your liking. Enjoy while warm and buttery soft for the best experience.
