Translated from Japanese: These were very delicious beef tendons! I often add tendon meat to oden and stew. This time, I first tried adding them to oden, which turned out more delicious than ever. As expected, it’s well-bred and you can see that it’s a sirloin and ribeye cuts, as it’s soft, has no odor and is of the highest quality. I'm looking forward to putting it in stew next! There’s plenty in one pack!!!! I will definitely order again!

I’m very satisfied with the quality and price.

Translated from Japanese: I made beef stew.
I boiled the meat for about 5 minutes, then simmered it for 10 minutes with other stir-fried ingredients, and then cooked it in a vacuum thermal cooker for about 2 hours.
It had a melty texture and was very delicious.

I make sure to order this every time

Translated from Japanese: I order this every time
I like it because it has a reasonable priced and tastes like Japanese beef. It can be used for a wide range of purposes such as teriyaki with boiled radish shochu.
I think next time I will try to make beef tendon jerky.

Boiled it lightly, it was really soft and good

Translated from Japanese: I had the image that beef tendons are hard and not delicious, so I never tried them, but I gave them a try, lightly boiled them for one hand a half hours and when I ate them the next morning they were so soft and delicious, I was shocked! The price is good and New Zealand beef is my favorite (now).

Beef tendon curry~!

Translated from Japanese: I ordered because I always wanted to succeed at making a beef tendon curry.
The curry I made with a pressure cooker was amazing.
There’s almost no unpleasant smell, so just boiling it as preparation is enough to use it right away.
My family told me to use this for our curry from now on.

New Zealand Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Trimmings and Cuts (250g)

Ocean Beef
BF169

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 and the striploin steaks have 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.

These are the tendon trimmings from the striploin. Whenever we process the whole striploin and ribeye into 1kg and 800g blocks, we have trimmings that are leftover. Beef trimmings are very popular in Japanese cuisine, known as Gyusuji and are usually used for a dish called Gyusuji Nikomi - a hearty Japanese classic that is extremely flavorful - slow-cooked for a long time until it almost melts in your mouth. Logically we only have a few of these and we are interested in clearing our shelves so we drop the price low to almost non-profit. Because these are cuts from a primal used for steaks only you can expect this to be the very best quality you can get in Japan for this price - hands down.

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.

Blue hake and Tasmanian salmon for New Year

Translated from Japanese: I put great importance to protein and safety.
For New Year's, I’m having luxurious Tasmanian salmon sashimi with the usual high-protein blue hake.

Protein and Vitamin D

Translated from Japanese: Blue hake is low in calories and can be expected to have protein and a certain amount of vitamin D ❗

Very pleased with the quantity and quality of this order! There was no fishy smell. I pan fried the fillets and the fish meat held together, did not break up. Most importantly these are delicious! I used simple spices like salt, pepper, turmeric and paprika, and it was just so good that I immediately placed another order!

Delicious ❤︎

Translated from Japanese: It has no unpleasant smell, so even I, who is not good with fish, enjoyed it. Since it has no bones, it can also be used for baby food.
I will order again.

Translated from Japanese: It has no smell and you can eat it daily. Delicious ❗

Safe and organic

Translated from Japanese: I was looking for free-range meat that was at least a little guilt-free and safe for my body.
It was delicious.
Thank you for your products.

Real chicken!

Translated from Japanese: Recently, when I started thinking about animal welfare and researching various things, I found out about "HORIZON FARMS".
I was especially looking for chicken and wanted to try the chicken from "Bostock Brothers Farm" who grew up in a wonderful environment! That’s why I bought it
I thought that the feelings for life, the environment in which they grow, the feed make it a wonderful farm.
Without a doubt, it was the most delicious and safest chicken I have ever had.
I would like to thank everyone at "Bostock Brothers Farm" and everyone at "HORIZON FARMS". Thank you for making such wonderful meat available in Japan.

Refreshing!

Fresh, juicy, delicious

Translated from Japanese: Knowing the current situation of Japanese broilers, I searched for chicken that is raised more freely.
I found Horizon Farms and bought it immediately.
I bought a lot, but first I got this chicken breast meat.
It’s very juicy and delicious. Thank you.
From now on, I will order this again if I want to eat meat.

Chicken ham

Translated from Japanese: The New Zealand lamb I received last time was very delicious, so I ordered chicken this time.
Overnight, I soaked it in salt and stevia to make chicken ham. I was surprised to hear that the breast meat is a chicken that exercises a lot and very soft nevertheless. Especially, the fat part of the thin skin is exquisite.
Thank you to Mr. Chicken, Mr. Bostock, Mr. Horizon for bringing this organic, delicious meat from far away to Japan.

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.

J
J.

Translated from Japanese: The texture, flavor and taste are very good. The chicken I ate in a restaurant after this was smelly and had a bad texture, so I couldn't eat it.

Safe! Organic! And delicious!!!

Translated from Japanese: At first, I was worried about what foreign organic chicken would look like, but although they taste a little different from domestic chicken, they're rich in flavor and delicious. Even if they're grilled or boiled, they'll become very soft if cooked well. The drumsticks were delicious, but these boneless thighs have been my favorite lately, so I’ve been reordering them.

J
J.
Reorder required

Translated from Japanese: I was very happy that the size turned out to be larger than I expected! I think I will continue to order here.
