These are the tendon trimmings from the striploin, ribeye or tenderloin. Whenever we process the larger blocks of meat into smaller portions, we have trimmings that are leftovers. 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.
Our new-comer, very hard to come by in Japan - but we've made it possible. 100% grass-fed pasture-raised beef from Australia - the land of grass-fed beef. This is not only 100% grass-fed beef, but this is also 100% free of antibiotics and 100% free of growth hormones and 100% free of GMOs - if you are looking for clean 100% grass-fed and 100% grass-finished beef - there is nothing better than this. Great Southern beef is produced in the southern areas of Australia, where year-round rainfall coupled with Australia’s beautiful sunshine, yield exceptional pastures for cattle to graze on.
Although we prefer and recommend beef from cows that have been grass-fed and then finished on natural grain feed for the superior quality, tenderness, and taste (see our Morgan Ranch Beef) - we understand that 100% grass-fed beef can be a preference for the health-conscious. So we bring you the very best quality available from Australia. 100% grass-fed beef has indeed higher concentrations of the following nutritions: antioxidants, vitamins, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and long-chain omega-3 fats mostly found in fish. It also has less fat overall.
