Export and Processing
Directly imported from Australia to Japan by Horizon Farms, locally processed in Japan, and then flash-frozen for freshness and longevity.
Defrost in the fridge for at least 24h or longer. Make sure the ribs are completely defrosted. We do not recommend defrosting in cold water as it simply takes too long for the core of the ribs to defrost.
Once defrosted open the package and let the meat breathe for at least 15 minutes. Pat dry excess moisture with a paper towel. The color will change to a vivid red.
There are many ways to prepare beef short ribs, the recommend either slow cooking or pressure cooking the short ribs. You can bbq them but you'll need to break down the collagen first which is only possible if you slow cook or pressure cook the spare ribs. Another way is to smoke them for an extended period of time.
We'll be presenting the pressure-cooker method which is the easiest and fastest preparation method. Cut the short rib into smaller cuts along with the bones.
Next, season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Place the ribs into your pressure cooker and add one cup of water.
Cook for 60 to 90 minutes - this highly depends on your pressure cooker. Pro tip: If you're not sure about cooking times, always undercook rather than overcook! You can always bring the food back under pressure and continue cooking until you're happy with the results. We cooked ours for 60 minutes with an electric pressure cooker.
After cooking your kitchen will be filled with a beefy succulent aroma. The short ribs are done when you can easily and one-handedly insert a fork into the meat part.
Like cooking methods, there are many ways to serve short ribs. The fanciest way is to serve with mashed potatoes and gravy sauce.
Eating with kids or like to have it simple? Shred the short ribs and serve together with your vegetable soup or next to green peas and mashed potatoes.
Never ever throw away the beef stock produced while cooking the short ribs. They are worth gold. This is not just any beef stock, this is top quality 100% grass-fed beef stock. For gravy sauce: heat up the beef stock, once it starts bubbling add any kind of starch or flour until it thickens. Keep whiskering until you have a thick texture. Adjust with either flour or more water. Now add black pepper and salt for taste. Be careful not to add to much salt. There you have your rich gravy sauce. Enjoy.
Translated from Japanese: The bone broth made from this chicken is also very delicious, but I am very pleased that I can scrape off the meat after taking the soup stock and give it to my pet cat. It’s a product that everyone, both pets and families, will appreciate.
Translated from Japanese: I made bone broth soup. It was delicious without any odor. It's non-genetically modified meat, so I'm happy to eat it with confidence. It seems that you will not be able to eat anything other than this meat (laughs)
I will continue to purchase it.
Translated from Japanese: I received very cleanly processed chicken frames with no odor. I used them to make bone broth.
We enjoyed the soup simply seasoned with salt and pepper, toshikoshi soba, New Year's ozoni, ramen and curry. Thank you for the good products!!!
Translated from Japanese: As you can see in other reviews, these are very beautifully processed chicken frames. I boiled them in a pot without adding any spices to eliminate the odor, but there was no odor during cooking. A clean and clear soup was made.
I want to order it again!
For bone broth soup
Translated from Japanese: It was a volume that I couldn't think of as 1.5 kg! I came here looking for meat that I could eat with no worries. I’d like it if you also offered different types of chicken wings.
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 (^^)
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.
Translated from Japanese: I got it to make bone broth soup. The store was very polite and nice and the product itself is also very nice. It has a strong taste, and above all, it’s grass-fed meat, so you can eat it with no worries. I will order again.
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 haven’t been able to eat in a restaurant because of corona, so I wanted to have something that is just as delicious, even if made at home. My family likes lamb, so I searched for lamb shanks. It was my first time buying here, but I was very satisfied. It was my first time seeing raw lamb shank, but it was very beautiful and my impression after eating was that it’s tender and delicious with no odor. For those who want to give this a try, if you have a pressure cooker, wine and rosemary, it will be delicious. I recommend it. Next weekend, I gave the recipe on the website a try and my family loved it.
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.
