Grass-fed beef bone-in short ribs from Austria

Translated from Japanese: I’m reordering. Above all, the amount of meat is really nice for this price.

When cooked in a slow cooker, the meat turns very tender and is easy to cook.

Even simple seasoning with salt and pepper and soy sauce is delicious enough without adding too much vegetables and seasonings.

I want to buy it again.

Easy & very delicious

Translated from Japanese: A pressure cooker was used on the product page, but I used a slow cooker.

I simply cut between the bones and threw them into my slow cooker with the appropriately chopped vegetables.

I only used salt and pepper as seasoning.

I turned on the switch in the morning, and 8 hours after leaving it to cook, the super delicious soup is ready.

The meat is fluffy and the soup is rich.

I baked a baguette in the oven, soaked it in the soup and ate it like that.

It is a dish that goes well with both wine and beer.

Thank you for the meal.

Soft!

Translated from Japanese: Just like it was explained in the cooking instructions on the website, I boiled it in a pressure cooker for 2 hours. When I first read the instructions and saw the mention of 2 hours, I thought it would be exhausting, but it was thankfully relaxing! I cut the ingredients and put them into a pot until they were boiling and put everything inside the pressure cooker afterwards. Personally, it’s important that a dish doesn’t take too long to prepare for a weekend’s lunch. In the meantime, I got a lot of things done! When it was done, it was so soft the meat basically fell off the bone. The soup that I created with carrots as well was delicious, too. I ate it with mashed potatoes, but I think I would’ve liked it more with bread inside the soup. It seems I will be able to have a delicious lunch tomorrow with the leftovers. I used the coupon I received for writing a comment last time. I think I will order meat, used for Thanksgiving or Christmas, again.

Grass-Fed Beef Bone-In Short Ribs Austria (1-2.2kg)

Horizon Farms

Buy More, Save More

A whole block of dry-aged Austrian (Europe) short ribs. An inexpensive, great braising cut. We recommend using this cut for cooking with a pressure cooker or slow cooking only. Pressure-cooked for at least 2h the meat will be fork-tender and will literally melt in your mouth. Simmental beef is a common breed in western Europe and known for its portion sizes, distinctive beefy flavor, and tenderness. You get 3-4 ribs, depending on the size. Although with little marbling, European beef has a very distinctive - almost clean beefy/milky flavor due to a difference in the type of breed (Simmental) compared to Australian or Amerian beef.

The cattle are bred free-range in small groups on the open pastures of the pristine hills and alps of Austria by family farm alliances. The feed is in-house grown and the beef is AMA certified (well known in Austria) meaning all produce has been certified of Austrian origin. The cattle are grass-fed their entire lives and if lush green grass is not available due to the season or weather - especially during the winter - the cattle are supplemented with a mix of all-natural grains and vitamins - all free of pesticides, GMO, and nasties. By regulations, all cattle in Europe are free of growth hormones and free subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. See more below.

Simmental Austria

 

Simmental beef is bred for milk and beef in Austria. More than half of Austria's utilized agricultural area is grassland making milk production and cattle farming a major industry. The European Union, especially Austria put rigorous measures and laws in place that put a strong emphasis on animal welfare. On average farmers in Austria only own about 25 cows (!!) per farm - thus being referred to as micro family farms. So small most farmers can distinguish their cattle by their faces. Austrian Simmental beef is grazed on pristine alpine pastures with fresh mountain air - ethically raised with love, free of stress creating quality beef that is appreciated worldwide. The feed and the pastures are locally produced and grown, free of pesticides and GMOs. Simmental cattle are not treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. Small family farms don't own their own processing and export facilities and therefore sell their cattle in alliances to processors who pack and export to Japan.

Beef Bone-In Short Rib Recipe Instructions

Simmental Beef Short Ribs

Defrost the whole short rib in the fridge. Do not defrost in cold-water or on the countertop as the defrosting processing would take a lot of time to reach the center of the short rib.

Simmental Short Ribs

Cut the ribs along the bone, depending on the size of the short rib you may get 3 to 4 cuts of short ribs. Do not trim off the fat. The fat makes the meat delicious and tender. It coats your mouth unctuously and adds flavor. Short ribs are usually a very fatty cut.

Simmental Short Ribs

Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. 

Simmental Short Ribs

Cut large pieces of potatoes and carrots. 4 quarters of an onion and 4 peeled garlic cloves and thyme is what we used. Place them all into the pressure cooker. Add a can of diced tomatoes, and a cup of red wine. Now add enough beef broth liquid so everything is covered (make sure not to exceed the volume limit of the pressure cooker). Season again with freshly ground pepper and sea salt. 

Simmental Short Ribs

Set the timer to 2h - constant pressure, 1.5h is fine as well if you don't like the meat to fall apart by just touching it and for it to have consistency.

Simmental Short Ribs

We pressure cooked the short ribs for 2h and they were simply amazing. The meat fell off the bone so easily. The soup was a rich hearty soup that could easily be a main entree or an appetizer.

Simmental Short Ribs

When we say fork-tender, we mean fork-tender. 

Simmental Short Ribs

When serving, remove the chunks of fat. They are not supposed to be eaten but they are essential during the cooking process as they make the meat tender and delicious. Removing the bones and the fat you'll end up with about half of the block.

Simmental Short Ribs

Use the shredded short rib meat for the soup, sandwiches or tacos for example.

Simmental Short Ribs

Enjoy healthy and safe beef from Europe.

I will order again!

Translated from Japanese: Because the large chicken bones are cut in two and in a pouch, it’s easy to put them in a pan and they’re very easy to use!
Above all, they taste amazing!
Until now, I used to buy Nagoya Cochin chicken bones in a department store, but in terms of taste and safety, these are better.
I’ve been enjoying making chicken broth for 4 days in a row.
I will order again!

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: Bone broth made from these chicken bones is delicious just by adding herbs, salt and pepper.
Also, since it has a lot of meat, it’s recommended to break it down and boil it in soy sauce and mirin after making the bone broth.
If you mix it with rice, you can make delicious chicken rice.
However, be careful as there are many small bones.

For making bone broth.

Translated from Japanese: I bought it because it was a safe product. I'm making a nice scent in the slow cooker now ^ _ ^ There is no odor at all and it looks very delicious. It seems that you can serve delicious soup to your dog and family as well. Thank you very much.

Not suitable for mizutaki

Translated from Japanese: I bought this whole chicken because I wanted to get soup stock out of the bones. I don't know how to cook many dishes, so I chose my favorite mizutaki.
Since the breeding period is long, I expected it to be old, but the taste is refreshing and the body is soft.
But hmm (tears)
I took the lye out carefully, but the unique taste and smell are spicy. Japanese chicken is very delicious with only salt, but this was not possible. You can't add garlic, onions or tomatoes. I managed to eat it with curry spice.
I should have followed the recommended recipe.
I want to eat naturally grazing chicken, so I will study how to cook it and try again.

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.

Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.

I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.

I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.

I tried a whole chicken for the first time.

Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.

For oxtail soup

Translated from Japanese: I always buy it to make tail soup. Domestic Wagyu beef has a lot of oil, but this one has a moderate amount of oil and is delicious as it is without any preparation.

Translated from Japanese: I bought these to make bone broth easily and they were better than I expected.
Preparing the meat beforehand is recommended because it can be finished deliciously with salt and pepper without any odor by removing the lye only once.
It was delicious even with oatmeal and risotto.

Really delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made a simple soup with green onions, radish and these oxtails.
The seasoning I used was only salt, pepper and soy sauce and when I slowly simmered it, it connected with the flavor of the vegetables and turned very delicious.
The price is high and it's a shame that we have to compromise with the price because it's grass-fed.

Translated from Japanese: This is my second time ordering. It was as delicious as last time, but this time it had a long bone and barely fit in the pressure cooker. 😅

I’m suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

Translated from Japanese: I'm suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (CS), so I searched for safe meat that was drug-free and wasn't fed with strange foods. Sheep are said to be nutritious, but I can't find them in Japan, so I bought them in bulk up to the free shipping line, although it's a little expensive. I forcibly thawed and cooked it on the day I arrived, so it was still hard even if I used a pressure cooker, but it was delicious. I made tomato stew with it. The meat has a mellow lamb scent. Bone marrow is the best. The fat had a gummy-like feeling. I used to eat Genghis Khan, which only tasted like sauce, so I was satisfied with the lamb-taste spreading in my mouth. I'm looking forward to trying the other meats.

Translated from Japanese: The delivery was quick and the meat was better than I had imagined! It's safe and secure and I think this price is a good deal. I will order again.
