200g (7.0oz) of 100% grass-fed "vintage" ribeye steak from Australia. Sourced from European and British breeds of cows who are happily raised and further matured on open pastures longer than typical farm cows. This ethical approach, although it takes more time and resources, is what gives the meat superb marbling along with the typical and rich grass-fed flavor. Never have the cows been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. It is a rare treat to find grass-fed beef with this level of marbling and tenderness. For cooking use salt-free butter, only season with freshly ground pepper and sea salt, and cook slowly to medium-rare.
You may have heard of aged beef, but what is vintage beef? Vintage beef is the take on Spanish Galician beef. Basically beef from older cows. The cows are given the freedom to further mature on free-range pasture until they are at least 60 months of age - this is almost twice that of regular cattle! Grass-fed cows aren't usually known for their marbling, but since these cows are older they've developed luxurious marbling alongside their distinctive beef flavor. The meat is darker in color and the fat has a slight yellow tint that comes from the beta-carotene found in grass.
