Certified organic dry-aged Austrian (Europe) tenderloin filet steak. Simmental beef is a common breed in western Europe and known for its portion sizes, distinctive beefy flavor, and tenderness. The steak is thinly sized but still weighs 300g (10.5oz.) - this makes it very easy and quick to cook. Although less marbled the 28 days dry-aged Simmental beef has a very distinctive - almost clean beefy/milky flavor - not as deep as our premium Morgan Ranch Beef - but it definitely tops every supermarket-bought steak and franchise steak house. See the cooking instructions below.
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 BIO AMA certified (well known in Austria) meaning all produce has been certified of Austrian and organic non-GMO 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 the subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. Simmental cattle are genetically a very large animal and therefore the steak cuts are relatively big in size compared to our American or Australian cattle. See more about the breed below.

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 certified organic, free of pesticides and GMO. 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.
At A Glance
Simmental (locally known as Fleckvieh)
Alliance of independent family farms in Austria
Upper and Lower Austria
All year free-range. Kept indoors in cozy stalls during harsh winter seasons of Austria.
Grass-fed their entire lives. When necessary due to cold seasons: Fed a balanced mix home-grown grains, vitamins, and minerals. All pesticide-free, GMO-free of Austrian origin.
100% fully traceable from ranch to fork. Strictly regulated.
Completely defrost the steak in the fridge overnight or in cold water 1h before preparation. Take out of the package and pat dry with a paper towel. Let the steak breathe at room temperature for about 10 minutes.
Season with freshly ground coarse black pepper and sea salt. For the best experience, please do not cover up the flavor of the steak with a steak spice mix. This is a high-quality cut of steak that comes with its own rich flavor.
Use a bit of \extra virgin olive oil or high-quality non-salted butter in the fry-pan. Pre-heat to medium-rare before placing the steak within. You need to hear it sizzle. Not too high - not too low. We still want to sear and caramelize the steak.
Keep turning the steak often to make sure it cooks evenly on all sides.
If at hand, use a grease splatter screen to keep the kitchen clean. Because we want the steak to become crispy on the outside - we recommend not using a lid that traps the moisture inside.
The steak is done when slightly firm to the touch and the outside brown and caramelized. Alternatively, you can use a thermometer. Take the steak off the heat once the internal temperature has reached 50 degrees Celsius. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before serving as it keeps cooking on residue heat.
Serve and eat while warm for the best experience. Sprinkle with sea salt if needed.
Translated from Japanese: I got this as a Mother’s Day gift for my mother whom I couldn’t meet. The meat was soft and juicy and really delicious, she said. It’s also possible to order this warmly and with no worries as present for staff members. I think they package everything carefully, too. Thank you very much. I think I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: It’s like eating the steak of a famous steak house! I ate one steak with salt and wasabi. I used a fish grill and grilled it on both sides on low flame. After wrapping it up in aluminum foil, I turned the flame up and grilled it thoroughly on both sides. It turned out perfectly rose-pink. I ordered again right away. This time, I got a filet, sirloin, ribeye and salt set. I think I will look forward to doing this once a month.
This steak is full of charm
Translated from Japanese: Both, wagyu and American beef are of very high quality when it comes to their tenderness, the flavor of the lean meat and the sweetness of the fat. Although I think that the center of wagyu is the tastiest. I wonder if it’s because it’s grass-fed beef? Just like grain-fed, pure wagyu, this beef also doesn’t feel like it has a lot of fat on it and I think this is optimal to eat it as steak.
Translated from Japanese: I absolutely like this beef more than the beef from the famous beef restaurant of my local area. Marbled steak is always really soft and juicy, so it’s a light dish. Although I ate a lot, I don’t feel guilty. I’m happy I ate something healthy. I usually don’t like the smell of beef, but this one didn’t have any. My father’s teeth are weak, but he ate this ribeye happily. I think it’s easy to eat for children, too. While writing this comment, I feel like eating it again!
Translated from Japanese: I’ve reached that age where I hate very oily meat. It’s my first time ordering American beef online, but the concentrated, original taste of the meat was amazing.
Translated from Japanese: Although it's grass-fed beef, it was delicious without any odor because it’s grain-finished.
Even after thawing and cooking it immediately, it was not dry and soft. It's expensive because it's the highest quality, but it was meat that made me want to eat it again.
Translated from Japanese: It had the feeling of “American beef”.
Delicious meat with no strange taste!
Translated from Japanese: Because the meat was so thick, it’s not enough to only cook two sides, but the sides have to be carefully grilled as well to reach the medium rare state. It’s an unique article that tastes good from the first bite, but is even more delicious when you chew it. When you say “ah” with the food in your mouth, a nice aroma comes out and the meat’s taste spreads evenly. With just salt and pepper, nothing else is needed, I grilled it in a simple way. I thought the fat on the meat would smell, but a properly raised cow is different after all. I’m happy for having had something delicious!
(I ordered) sirloin, flap meat steak and filet mignon
Translated from Japanese: I prepared those three and compared them. My friend liked the sirloin meat. It tastes like steak, my friend said. My husband liked the flap meat steak. He said it tasted like the meat was cut from the best part of the cow. I quickly wrapped it inside a tortilla and ate it like that and even the meat juice sticking to the tortilla was delicious~
We bought 10 of these for our garden party last week and each and every person was truly amazed by the quality and the taste. Our chef cooked them to medium and we used your Italian salt. Almost too good to give them to the kids!! We grilled the burgers for them anywy - they were exceptional as well - bravo! My family and I appreciate your business and are very happy to have found healthy and safe meat in Japan. I'd recommend adding more brochures so we can hand them out.
Translated from Japanese: If you want a thick sliced steak, I recommend small filets more than sirloin or rib roasts.
Only if possible, use a thick iron plate and grill it slowly, it won’t go wrong for sure.
This meat is soft
Translated from Japanese: While wondering if this had been a waste of money, I grilled it for a BBQ. I put it on the grill and topped it off with the sea salt that is sold here as well. After adding some pepper as well, I grilled it on low heat. Once the entire meat had changed its color, I broiled it right in the middle of the grill on the highest heat. When I cut it into pieces it was perfectly medium-rare. I thought it was an exaggeration that you can even cut it with chopsticks, but it was really soft enough to work. When you chew the meat the delicious taste spreads in your mouth bit by bit. At first, I thought the meat is expensive, but now I agree (with the price). Although I didn’t grill it in a frypan, I think it was good I gave the BBQ grill a try.
Translated from Japanese: Very delicious!
Translated from Japanese: I’m glad it was considerably big.
I wonder if it would be even more delicious if I grilled it more?
Translated from Japanese: It was really soft and delicious! I ate it with Texas spice. I could also eat it without worrying about the fat on the meat. I will order again!
Translated from Japanese: It’s the real thing.
An American taste
Translated from Japanese: I think that American beef is the most delicious. Japanese oily beef tastes bad, but the taste of this one is splendid from the first bite. I grilled it carefully on low heat and ate it rare. It was a great success. I think I will order again.
