Little fat

Translated from Japanese: It’s meat with little fat that overflows with deliciousness. I ate it slowly and deliciously. Thank you.

Also, I liked the packaging. You don’t need scissors or a knife, you can easily open it with your hands and take out only half of it. There are no wastes, you can wash and dry and recycle the rest.

Venison Shoulder Stew Meat from New Zealand (500g)

Horizon Farms
EL357

One pack of venison diced shoulder for stews. Also known as venison goulash meat. Each pack contains 500g (1.1lbs.) of very nicely cut venison - these are not trimmings! Purely cut from the shoulder of deer - these cuts are extremely lean and therefore only suitable for slow and pressure cooking. They are cut quite large, please feel free to further cut them down into smaller sizes if preferred. 

Venison, the other red meat. Often found on the menus of upscale restaurants throughout the world. Most folks associate venison with gamey odor and tough meat - that is most likely wild venison. Give our free-range farmed venison a chance, it'll change your concept on venison.

Our premium quality venison comes from deer that is sustainably all-time pasture-raised in small herds on very large pastures run by real family farms of New Zealand. The deers are purely bred for taste. The difference between pasture-raised venison and wild venison is subtle delicate flavor and superb tenderness mostly due to a healthy, low-stress life and a careful selective breeding process. It goes without saying that the animals have never been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.

✔ Humanely raised and treated with respect. Sustainably raised in small herds on large pastures in Canterbury Highlands and Plains of the South Island, New Zealand.

✔ No subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. No growth-promoting hormones, no nasties. No factory farming. Domesticated deer live a stress-free and healthy life and are harvested on the field.

✔ Compared to wild venison: Domesticated venison meat has no gamey texture and taste. It has a consistent flavor profile and is tender and mildly flavored.

✔ Deer naturally feed on grass all their life and are fed all-natural vitamins and nutritions, haylage (grasses and legumes), and silage (green foliage crops) in winter when fresh, green pasture is limited.

Translated from Japanese: I made a stewed hamburger out of it. As expected, it was easy to eat.
My family told me that I forgot to add spices, salt and pepper when I made the hamburger, so it had a slight scent and taste.
If you add spices properly, you won't feel its peculiar scent.
It’s good it doesn’t have much fat. If the price gets a little cheaper, I might buy it more often.

Ground Venisen

Very very good. Prepared in a cast iron fry pan. Sheared and finished in the oven for 15 min at 360F. Amazing. I loved it. It was like I tried ground meat for the first time. Will order this again for sure!

You can feel the good quality

Translated from Japanese: It was a fine and soft steak. The fat is moderate, it seems to be light and it’s tasty. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also nutritious and I didn't have heartburn or an stomach upset, so it's the number one steak I want to keep reordering. I made a sauce by adding lemon juice and a little sugar to the organic wild blueberries that are also sold here, which also went well with the steak!
