Introducing MB5+ premium grade grain-fed whole block of culotte beef (also known as rump cap or picanha). Each roast weighs 1.6kg (3.5lbs) and is the ideal cut for juicy and meaty roasts bursting with flavor. Superbly marbled barley-fed Black Angus beef from Australia. "Tenderstretched" - giving it a surprisingly tender texture that is rare for rump cuts. We recommend leaving the fat cap on. Sear fat down first and finish the roast in the oven to medium-rare. If you are a fan of rump steaks you can cut this roast into smaller steaks of course. In that case, it is best to trim the fat cap. Also the ideal cut for Brazilian Churrasco. See the cooking instructions below.
✔ Grass-Fed and Grain-Finished on a custom GMO-free barley feed for at least 150 days for superior marbling and flavor.
✔ Free-range and open pasture-raised all year round.
✔ Humanely raised and treated with respect.
✔ No antibiotics or growth hormones - ever!
✔ "Tenderstreched" method of processing increases the tenderness of the meat.

PURE Black beef from Australia. Black Angus free-range Aussie cows are long fed for at least 150 days on a proprietary GMO-free barley feed for superior marbling and a buttery-rich flavor.

Absolutely no use of subtherapeutic antibiotics or growth hormones. Ethical and luxurious at the same time. Taste the difference.

Slowly defrost the roast in the fridge for about 2 days. Defrosting in water is not recommended. 20 minutes before cooking open the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel. Then let the roast breathe on the countertop at room temperature.
When you prepare steaks, sea salt and freshly ground pepper are enough. For roasts, we recommend using a seasoning mix and olive oil. Mix and rub well. Do not remove the fat cap as it plays an important role during cooking and makes the roast juicier.
Now, preheat your fry pan to maximum heat. Add a bit of olive oil and immediately place the roast fat side down in the fry-pan to sear the whole fat side.
After about 3 minutes turn off the heat and turn the roast around for a quick sear. We only want to crisp up the outer layer.
Place on an oven tray. Use a leave-in thermometer if at hand. Check out our thermometer we sell.
Cook on medium heat at 180 degrees Celsius for about 40 minutes. The roasting time depends on many factors such as oven size, power, and the roast size. If you are unsure try 30 minutes first and then check the core temperature at the center of the roast. Once the roast hits 50 degrees Celsius (130 degrees Fahrenheit) remove from the oven.
The roast continues to cook on the inside. Wrap it in aluminum foil and let it rest for another 15 minutes.
Check this one out. Cooked to perfectness. For the best taste experience, we recommend cooking roasts and steaks to medium-rare.
Very important: Make sure you cut against the grain like seen in this image. This way you make sure the meat does not become chewy.
Slice and serve. Enjoy high quality and ethically sourced luxurious beef from Australia with the whole family.
