Grass-Fed Beef Oxtail / Tail Cuts Austria (500g)

Buy More, Save More

A pack of cuts from the beef tail. Each slice is about 2.5cm thick (1 inch) and enough for plenty of beef bone broth for the whole family. Cooked long enough the meat will turn rich gelatinous. Simmental beef is a common breed in western Europe and known for its portion sizes, distinctive beefy flavor, and tenderness.  These oxtail cuts are made for slow cooking. Compared to our Morgan Ranch Beef, the Austrian oxtails are less marbled and therefore produce a less rich bone broth. However, in terms of quality, this Austrian beef definitely tops every supermarket-bought commodity meat. 

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 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 a very large animal and therefore the cuts are relatively big in size compared to our American or Australian cattle. See more about the breed 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.

Suitable for tail soup with moderate fat

Translated from Japanese: I always buy it to make tail soup.
Unlike the thick Wagyu beef, it’s refreshing, and has a moderate amount of fat, making it a very delicious soup.

For tail soup ◎

Translated from Japanese: I use it when I want to have tail soup.
The meat is soft and delicious when simmered well.
If you drain the blood well, you can enjoy it without any odor. My young children also love it.

I ordered it many times.

Translated from Japanese: I ordered it many times to make bone broth. After the bone broth is completed, I take the meat from the bones and use it for curry or hayashi rice to make them even more delicious.
