Translated from Japanese: I always buy Australian products when I want to make bone broth and this is my first time trying Austrian products. The 500g size is also small and easy to handle and I felt that there was a strong tendency for it to become gelatinous (collagen?) when the bone broth is refrigerated. As for the taste, both are perfectly delicious.

I buy it every time

Translated from Japanese: I cook this oxtail and meat guy's beef tendon for 12 hours to make curry.
Does it take so long because it’s grain-finished? I'm grateful that you can get grass-fed meat at this price.
The meat also comes off smoothly.

Bone broth soup with plenty of collagen

Translated from Japanese: This is my favorite taste of bone broth soup.
If you pay attention to the water and oxtail added, collagen will come out and it will become plump after boiling for a long time. It's possible to freeze the soup stock.

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.

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

Horizon Farms
BF185
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.

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.

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. 😅
It's like the meat in the old-fashioned anime Gyātoruzu. It's very satisfying to eat. I’d like to order again.

Translated from Japanese: I stewed it in wine inside a pressure cooker. The meat is beautiful and the taste is very good! Speaking of treats in NZ, as I was eating this meat, I was happy that I could order and cook it so easily. I’d like to order again.

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.

Yahoo

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.

I came to like liver

Translated from Japanese: I ate lamb liver for the first time. It was delicious and impressive and I fell in love with liver. In addition, I would like to order it and make it a dietary habit to eliminate iron deficiency.

J
J.

Translated from Japanese: I have ordered several times
Lamb meat is good for the body, so my Bulldog is also enjoying this luxurious meat
His fur has gotten soft.
If you overcook it, it will harden, so easily turn it around on the heat
To eat in medium rare, turn off the heat of the frying pan.
After 1 minute, turn it over and if the blood oozes, you have to eat it.
I don't think you can eat it deliciously.

Translated from Japanese: I was looking forward to seeing lamb liver as it is not on the market.
I like lamb meat, so if you don't like it, you probably don't like that unique smell and flavor.
I was surprised because there is no unpleasant smell in this part
I like the distinctive flavor
The notable point is that the heat passes quickly.
It's not delicious unless you eat it medium rare, so cooking it with oil in a frying pan.
Cook it at high heat and turn it around often,
Even 30 seconds is enough on one side.
And when cooked at high heat again, blood oozes out.
Cooking time: Grill it quickly, otherwise it will look mushy.

Translated from Japanese: Thank you for the very rare high quality liver. It's really great because it's not sold anywhere else.
