Austrian Grass-Fed Beef Ribeye Roast (1kg)

Horizon Farms
BF189

Description

Simmental is a common breed in western Europe and known for its portion sizes, distinctive beefy flavor, and tenderness. 1kg (2.2lbs) block of ribeye. Feel free to cook as a whole roast or cut into steaks. We recommend thin-sliced ribeye steaks. This makes it very easy and quick to cook - almost like a minute steak. Although less marbled the 28 days dry-aged Simmental beef has a very distinctive - surprisingly clean beefy flavor. Easily distinguishable from common Angus or Hereford breeds used in Australia and the US.

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 antibiotics 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 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 certified organic, free of pesticides and GMO. Simmental cattle are not treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.

Beef Ribeye Steak Recipe Instructions

Austrian Simmental Beef

Completely defrost in the fridge and cut into thin steaks. Let the steak breathe at room temperature for about 10 minutes.

Austrian Simmental Beef

Rub with freshly ground coarse black pepper and sea salt or your favorite steak spice.

Austrian Simmental Beef

Because steak is thin you need to cook it on high heat. Prepare the skillet or fry-pan to high heat. Use a bit of olive oil or unsalted butter. Place the steak on the fry-pan or skillet only when hot. You need to hear it sizzle. 

Austrian Simmental Beef

Sear and keep turning to make sure both sides are crispy brown and caramelized. No worries about the internal temperature. Usually, the steak is done in 5 minutes. Remove from the heat once firm to the touch.

Austrian Simmental Beef

There is no need for resting time. Ready to be served right away. 

Austrian Organic Simmental Beef

Slice and sprinkle with sea salt for best presentation.

Translated from Japanese: I bought it many times already to make soup. I add the chicken bones to the finished soup and boil it for the second time to make the chicken broth soup.

J
J.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Highest quality

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.

J
J.

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.

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.
