A whole block of dry-aged Austrian (Europe) chuck eye roll. This cut is very rich in flavor and provides good marbling and tenderness. It is often referred to as the best low-cost alternative to the famous ribeye steak. This roast can be cut into thin tender and flavorsome minute steaks or cooked as a very flavorful and tender roast.
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 fed 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. Simmental cattle are genetically larger breeds and therefore the cuts are relatively big in size compared to our American or Australian beef. See more about the breed below.
Available sizes: 700g (1.5lbs), 900g (2lbs)

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.

Defrost the pack in the fridge for 2 days. Once completely defrosted, open the pack, drain all liquids, pat dry with a kitchen paper towel, and leave the meat to "breathe" for 15 minutes at room temperature. I will regain its beautiful color and freshness.
The great thing about the chuck eye is that it can be used as a steak or as a roast. We loved the steaks as much as we loved the roast.
For steaks simply cut into the desired thickness, we recommend thin slices as they cook fast and remain juicy. Season with olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper only. Keep it simple. This steak comes with plenty of flavors.
Because the steaks are thinly sliced you don't need to worry about the internal doneness. Simply cook for a couple of minutes under medium/high heat - you need to hear it sizzle. Keep turning.
Once both sides are caramelized and cooked - this usually takes less than 5 minutes - you can take off the steak from the heat.
Because the steaks are not thick you don't need to let the steaks rest in order to keep the internal temperature up.
Slice and serve right away. Incredibly flavorful beef.
One of the highly underrated cuts. The chuck eye roll, ladies and gentlemen.
Let's have a look at the roast. Place the chuck eye roast on an oven pan.
Season with your favorite steak or roast spice. We use freshly ground black pepper, sea salt, paprika powder, garlic powder, thyme powder and a tiny bit of mustard seed powder.
Place the roast on the middle rack in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30-45 minutes. The cooking time highly depends on oven size, oven type, and other factors. We recommend checking every 5 minutes after the 30 minutes mark. The best is to use our leave-in thermometer which indicates doneness by an LED light.
Once the core temperature of the roast has reached 53 degrees Celsius or 130 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the roast from the oven and place it on a cutting board with a juice groove for about 10 minutes. The resting time is crucial.
Slice and serve while warm. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes for a better experience.
Translated from Japanese: These are chicken frames that have been processed very beautifully.
The quality is safe and there is no odor even if you simmer it according to the reviews of other people.
I will order it again!
Translated from Japanese: I’ve reordered this many times
Recently, I’ve been boiling the two chicken frames, divide the finished product into bottles, freeze it, put it in the refrigerator the day before and drink it in the morning or use it for cooking that day.
I made a delicious bone broth soup.
Translated from Japanese: A delicious bone broth soup was made with beautiful bones. Both my mother and I have improved our gut health.
Translated from Japanese: I made bone broth soup for the first time, but it was delicious with almost no red color!
Translated from Japanese: I received very cleanly processed chicken that has no odor. I made bone broth using these.
I enjoyed the soup simply seasoned with salt and pepper. For the new year, I had it with soba, ozoni, ramen, and curry. Thank you for the good products!!
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.
Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (｡◕ˇДˇ◕｡)/
Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.
Used for Samgyetang
Translated from Japanese: I ordered it to make Samgyetang and because it’s a whole chicken, I put ginseng inside it.
I made a full soup like that, ate the meat at home and took the soup to work with me so I could drink it there. The body heats up from it.
Because I’m used to it, I break the chicken into adequate pieces for myself, use the frames for soup, freeze whatever is left and cook what I need.
Eating just one wing is economical.
Translated from Japanese: I used it for stewed dishes.
It was very delicious.
Grass-fed lamb shanks
Translated from Japanese: Great lamb shank!
When you open the pack, the meat is clean and has no odor. Just boil it with flavored vegetables such as tomatoes and onion bay leaves for two and a half hours ... A faint lamb scent, plenty of flavor, and meat is fluffy ... It has become a luxurious pot-au-feu.
Grass-fed lamb shanks
Translated from Japanese: I didn't know that New Zealand pesticide-free grass fed, antibiotics, and hormone-free lamb meat would be available at such a reasonable price.
It was packed properly in a well-frozen state and arrived the day after the order was placed.
When simmered in an ordinary pot with only vegetables and natural salt for 2 hours, the meat became surprisingly tender, and the bone marrow melted in the soup, giving it a strong flavor. Surprisingly, it has no odor.
When I lived in New Zealand, I saw many grazing sheep. It was impressive that I walked around the lush meadows freely and was grazing.
Translated from Japanese: The most delicious stewed meat. It's lamb and the meat itself has a light taste, but it's the best if you season it well. This time, I made pot-au-feu, put in salt and granule kelp soup stock, a tea bag of bouquet garni, a small amount of light soy sauce, and a small amount of pure rice liquor, and boiled green pepper. It seems that tomato sauce and white sauce can be used, too (reinforcement of the delicious "flavor" is essential). The fascia part is sticky and slippery, and the tendon part is fine and chewy and delicious. It's finer than the shin meat of adult beef, and it's only cheek meat that is comparable to this. Delicious.
The recommended stew time is about 1.5-2.5 hours.
The cost performance is good
Translated from Japanese: The meat part was delicious. I put all 3 packs together and made a marrow soup. I boiled it for about 5 minutes. I think this is a product that is delicious and has excellent cost performance.
Translated from Japanese: I got this safe and organic product to make delicious bone broth for babies in the late stages of baby food!
I made a very delicious soup and my baby ate it well.
I made bone broth
Translated from Japanese: It was easy to cook even for the first time, and I made a very rich and delicious soup. I boiled it for half a day, so it was easy to remove the meat from the bones and easy to eat. I want to buy it again.
Translated from Japanese: I think that there’s no better product for tail soup and bone broth. I think I will continue to buy it here.
Translated from Japanese: I bought it because I wanted to make tail stew. It's a pity that the edible part is less than half considering the number of grams because the bone occupies a considerable part.
The price is high for the quantity.
Translated from Japanese: I made tail soup. It was light, rich and delicious. My children also liked it and drank it. I want to order again.
